A judge in the state of Washington proved again today why we in Missouri had to amend our state constitution:
Gay couples can be married under Washington state law, because denying their right to do so is a violation of their constitutional rights, a judge ruled Wednesday.
“The denial to the plaintiffs of the right to marry constitutes a denial of substantive due process,” King County Superior Court Judge William L. Downing said in his ruling.
It’s really very simple: Men and women are fundamentally, biologically different. Therefore, a formal bond between two of the same–two men or two women–is different than a bond between one of each.
Treating different relationships differently is not discrimination.
Treating different relationships as though they were the same destroys any meaning those relationships would have had. That’s the historic example of Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, where homosexual marriage was legalized more than ten years ago, and most childbearing couples don’t even bother with it anymore.
That’s not a path America should follow.
