“I believe that marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman….the fundamental bedrock principle that exists between a man and a woman, going back into the mists of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.” Hillary Clinton
It seems that Hillary’s views on gay marriage have “evolved,” but that terminology drastically understates the extent to which she has changed her opinion on the subject to keep up with the times. To say Clinton “evolved” on gay marriage is sort of like saying Peter Parker changed slightly after he got bitten by a radioactive spider.
Equality is used by the left as merely a pretext for deconstruction of marriage. They are well aware that when you change the parameters of a thing it ceases to function. Redefine it and expand it until it encompasses everything and nothing at all.
Gay marriage is not about men marrying men or women marrying women; it is about the deconstruction of marriage between men and women, an attempt at eliminating marriage as a social institution. It is one small step on a tour that includes rising divorce rates, failing birth rates and the abandonment of responsibility. Each step on the tour takes apart the definition and structure of marriage until there is nothing left, until there is no way to distinguish marriage from a temporary liaison between members of uncertain sexes for reasons that due to their vagueness cannot be held to have any solemn and meaningful purposes. Once each basic value has been rendered null and void, inverted and revealed to be random and meaningless, then man is likewise revealed to be a random and meaningless creature whose existence requires shaping by those who know better.
As Orwell understood in 1984, tyranny is essentially about definitions. Stealing is sharing, crime is justice, property is theft, right is wrong and wrong is right; each deconstruction accompanied by an inversion so that anything once examined, comes to seem the opposite of what it really is and once accepted, it no longer has the old innate value, but a new enlightened one.
The final deconstruction eliminates nation, religion, family and even gender to reduce the soul of man to a blank slate waiting to be written on.
This is not a struggle about the right of equality, but the right of definition. It is not about whether men can get married, but whether marriage will mean anything. It is about preserving the shapes and structures of basic social concepts that define our identities in order to preserve those very concepts, rather than accepting their deconstruction into nullification.
Societies cannot survive without definition. People do not go on existing through the act of occupying space. The deconstruction of identity is also the destruction of people. And that it what we must fight against.
