HAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAHAAA AAAAAAA! I Thought your first post was hysterically funny hokey bullshit - but this one is even BETTER! You don't know your own creed, baboon.<quoted text>Toby, a true marriage was never a true marriage when it is destined to fail. Marriages only fail when either the man or one of his women renounce their faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Only complete submission to the laws of the Bible can keep a marriage from failing, which includes complete and unwavering submission of women to their man in all things. The Bible is the word of God and exists to help you to understand the Truth, the the Truth will elude you forever if you do not read it! Glory!
Would you like to try it from a Biblical perspective? I wouldn't if I were you. Lots of folks like to talk about Sodom and Gomorrah - such a horrifically bad example. The fable goes that a man wanted to toss his young virgin daughters to a bunch of drunk men vs. a bunch of drunk men having sex with each other. Of course this was at a time where women were property, society was rife with plural marriage, and it was o.k. for fathers to marry their own daughters, wives of dead brothers required to marry a living (and also married already) brother, etc. etc. If that is the utopia you desire, it is yours. The number of people who reject that sort of ridiculousness are growing fewer and fewer - and I believe we are all the better for it. Original sin, sanctioned incest, drowning innocent animals and again, institutionalized incest (Noah and his family, right? Somebody had to breed with their families brothers/sisters/aunts/uncles for society to continue, right? Because only Noah and his family were saved?)
This mysticism simply doesn't hold up to reality. And if it holds up to your reality, great. Just don't think you get to force others to align to that view. It is a powerless standpoint, because we all get to believe as we choose, and we thankfully, do not live in a theocracy. I do NOT need your opinion. The opinion by the Supreme Court satisfied me, and my partner and I of a solid 26 year relationship got legally married.
