Deconstructing Marriage

Well meaning but ignorant folks have been awash on Facebook supporting homosexual marriage. Indeed, many well meaning but ignorant Catholics have participated, changing their Facebook profile picture to a big red equal sign. The brainchild of the Human Rights Campaign, this sign has gone viral and is a testament to the power of cultural Marxism and, unfortunately, a lack of thinking through the issue of redefining marriage. Writer Daniel Greenfield explains what is really behind the push for homosexual marriage.

It is nothing less than the deconstruction of marriage. FTA:

The deconstruction of marriage is not a mere matter of front page photos of men kissing. It began with the deconstruction of the family. Gay marriage is only one small stop on a tour that includes rising divorce rates, falling childbirth rates and the abandonment of responsibility by twenty and even thirty-somethings.

Each step on the tour takes apart the definition and structure of marriage until there is nothing left. Gay marriage is not inclusive, it is yet another attempt at eliminating marriage as a social institution by deconstructing it until it no longer exists.

There are two ways to destroy a thing. You can either run it at while swinging a hammer with both hands or you can attack its structure until it no longer means anything.

The left hasn't gone all out by outlawing marriage, instead it has deconstructed it, taking apart each of its assumptions, from the economic to the cooperative to the emotional to the social, until it no longer means anything at all. 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 purpose.

There is more. It deserves a thoughtful read.
