The reason for this quick little post:
When it comes to the raging debate about the validity of “marriage”, and its attendant side-discussions, one thing is always missed when it comes to these debates, – WHY should the STATE be in the position to decide which marriages and/or unions are legitimate, from those which it decides are not? ? ?
What galls the heck out of me: These so-called “civil-rights” campaigners/groups (being as politically-connected and all) decide WHOSE rights are more important than the rights of others (especially in declining the rights of ideological opposites)! The very same kinds of futile arguments in the political spheres of influence rage on about “race”, “men vs. women”, and all that devisive talk about one side always being the victim of the other side’s differences. It’s time to drop these pointless charades, and see the real dangers for what they really are: TOO MUCH POWER AND “AUTHORITY” IN THE HANDS OF THOSE UNFIT TO WIELD THEM! – That is especially grievous towards the Dragonic Honor Code: “Let not He, who is unfit to rule, rule over Thee!”
Marriage, or any Sacred Union, is the response and responsibility of the Unifying parties, NOT the STATE, nor anyone else outside of that union. It is a personal choice, and a cooperative agreement between/among consenting-age individuals.
Marriage, or any Sacred Union, should be recognized by the God(s) and/or Goddess(es), as the individual-unifying parties see as their blessors and ablers.
Marriage, or any Sacred Union, is far too Sacred to be enchained to the whims of money, and any subjective constraint on the part of outside parties.
If we want any peace, for once and for all, concerning the issue of marriages and equal protections and considerations thereof; Then we need to bring back the old, truthful Common-Law Marriages, and get the STATE out of the “business” of marriages. Then, and ONLY then, will the magic of Free and Open Market fairly judge and make available, the services to every kind of marriage and Sacred Union possible – without strings attached!
