Marriage Amendment

It’s out of committee now. I hope it will be passed. Here's part of the text:
"Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman," reads the measure, which would require approval by two-thirds of Congress and three-fourths of the states.

"Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman,"

Mark Noonan on GOP Bloggers says this (And I agree!):
The family is the primary unit of civilization - it is not, by any stretch of the imagination, the individual. This is because human beings overwhelmingly cannot live on their own, and cannot have civilization without there being more than one human. Individuals are important, but what is more important is what Burke called our "little platoons" - those smaller groupings around which we conduct our daily lives and which provide us our real protection from the tyranny of the majority. These "little platoons" are our churches, social clubs, business associations and, most importantly, our families.

What gay marriage is designed to do is not so much lift up homosexual unions (only a very small percentage of homosexuals wish to get married) but to cast down heterosexual unions. The underlying concept is that the traditional family is an obstacle to the forward profess of society, so do whatever you can to make the family disintegrate - For me, this a line in the sand issue: thus far, and no further. Marriage and family have been buffeted by liberal/left attacks for half a century now, and it is time to call a halt.

Excuse me, but Western Civilization has been successful so far with Traditional Marriage. Why change it? I've studied cultural anthropology and there's no gay marriages. There are unions of multiple wives’s and one husband, or multiple husbands and one wife. But no unions of same sex. Anyway, in gay unions who’s the husband and who’s the wife? I don't want to confuse my kids. Let’s just keep it the way it has been for ages. The traditional family is perfect for me. I like the way the Catholic Church treats marriage as a vocation. It takes a Man and a Woman union to produce offspring. It works for me!
