Default Re: Question for Christians who Oppose Gay Marriage

Where do you get this mesh? How do you think those marriages were overturned at all? The first definition of marriage, the word, has been as follows; "The legal union of a man and woman as husband and wife." This isn't even open for debate. The institution is thousands of years old and it has historically, always been defined as a union between a man and a woman. It's clear you ignored the first line.

Then where is the argument? Definitions change. In this case, added to-- let's continue down the list.
"A union between two persons having the customary but usually not the legal force of marriage: a same-sex marriage."
Easy enough, right? No. We're talking about intent now, and it's obvious that at the writing of the word was for the definition accepted at the date of writing.

If marriage is to be allowed between same sex couples, it should be amended to the constitution and clarified. This is where I stand.
