Holy War

There are 3 comments on the citypaper.com story from Oct 2, 2012, titled Holy War. In it, citypaper.com reports that:

Maryland holds a special place in the legal history of same-sex marriage in America. In 1973, Maryland lawmakers reacted to marriage attempts by same-sex couples by enacting the nation’s first state law defining marriage as occurring between one man and one woman—what has since been dubbed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which became federal law in 1996.

"After the CMPA passed in Annapolis, Peroutka wrote a column entitled “Maryland Legislature Commits Suicide.” In it, he concluded that “no earthly government body can redefine marriage any more than it can redefine the law of gravity” and that “no matter how much ink gets spilled on paper in Annapolis, no change has occurred in either the laws of gravity or the definition of marriage.... "

I love that quote. That says it all.

Gravity is a law of physics.

Marriage is a man-made invention that has been "redefined" over the preceeding many centuries. The Jews of the Old Testament were polygamous, and that was their definition of marriage. Jews today are not polygamous, because they "redefined" marriage to outlaw polygamy in Judaism.
