Rights and Wrongs of Re-defining Marriage

married_coupleMarriage is defined as: the institution whereby men and women are joined in a special kind of social and legal dependence, for the purpose of founding and maintaining a family. Yet, Delaware has become the 11th state to reject that historic definition and recognize homosexual-unions as legal marriages.

This is not simply about letting two individuals live however they choose. Rather, it’s about radically reshaping society by legally forcing others to accept, approve and accommodate activities to which they morally object.

Business owners are told they have to change their beliefs or expose their businesses to fines or closure. Christian hospitals and social service organizations are suddenly told they must change their doctrines or close their doors. And parents don’t even have a right to be notified when a school system teaches their children content that radically conflicts with their moral beliefs! This is wrong.

Religious rights will suffer by re-defining marriage.
