Man-made rights changing our culture

-A A +A

The Supreme Court handed down its opinion Friday, June 26, that same-sex marriage is a right in all 50 states. Justice Anthony Kennedy replied to the observation that this will do harm to the institution of traditional marriage by saying, “Far from seeking to devalue marriage, the petitioners seek it for themselves because of their respect and need for its privileges and responsibilities.”

That’s all sweet and nice, but Kennedy must have been ironing his robe for the last couple years, because the radical left’s objective was to destroy traditional marriage. And their way of doing that will now come to light when all kinds of warped people come out to marry their self, children (pedophiles), animals, inanimate objects and anything you can imagine.

Think this is nuts? Already, before this action, a man tried to marry his adopted son, and polygamists are pushing their rights, too. Now it’s a right. Now that gays have their rights, so does everyone and everything else – a consequence of man-made-rights.

So, down the road a year or two, if you see your neighbor walking his dog, you may want to see if the animal is wearing a wedding band before you say, “nice pet.”
