Re: July 29 letter from Charles Bader, “Challenging the arguments against gay marriage”
Bader's letter is no more than a misguided attempt at redefining marriage, stating, “The conventions of marriage are socially defined not ordained by a higher power and they should change when not appropriately inclusive.”
Conventions of marriage, as Bader expressly defines later in his letter, are sex acts including oral and anal sex. He also dismisses as a higher power nature's design to achieve the potential and very natural consequence of the male-female sexual union, conception.
Furthermore, Bader argues that society's confirmation of sterile heterosexual unions (seniors) as marriage also confirms the validity of accepting homosexual unions as marriage. Once again he rejects the design of nature, the undeniable purpose of the male-female matrix, recognized and affirmed as marriage by society for centuries even when the potential for procreation may be absent.
Finally, how much more contradictory could Bader’s claim be as he insists that the adoption of children provides homosexual unions with the same purpose and legitimacy as heterosexual unions? Could it be any more apparent that without male-female sexual unions homosexuals would be bereft entirely of the opportunity to foster a child, a fact so unmistakably clear as to resolve the issue conclusively?
Oh to what lengths finally will the liberals’ unbridled obsession with inclusiveness abuse our patience?
