The sanctity of correcting past mistakes

by Jeremy Hooper

The following text snippet comes from a letter to the editor that was written in 1931:

Sanctity1930

So wait, social conservatives -- what's that about marriage never changing with the times?

Your thoughts

A bit off topic but I wanted to share - I spend way to much time on Townhall.com - but these two columns struck me as odd considering where I read them. Maybe Townhall’s target readers might listen and wise up plus I think it's a step in the right direction:

I LOVE your "very old newspaper article" articles. This one is great, too.

Apparently, marriage has been under attack for a very, very long time (I suspect you can find some Roman authors complaining about how young people just don't know how to set up a household anymore!)

This article is cute! And shows an element that we should use and holler and shout from the rooftops: TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE HAS NOT EXISTED SINCE WOMEN BECAME EQUAL TO MEN. "Traditional Marriage" meant a man owned a woman! It was her duty to give him a son, so his stuff would stay in the family. If she refused, he beat and f&cked her until she did, or until she died trying. Then he remarried. When the Supreme Court decided it was possible for a husband to R4PE his wife, it was the end of traditional marriage. The idea of a PARTNERSHIP OF 2 EQUALS BASED IN LOVE is a RADICAL, NEW definition of marriage.

Any woman -- any woman -- who voted for Prop 8 is a raving hypocrite. Or she really wants to go back to the traditional beatings and r4pes.

I was reading a couple weeks back some articles written before 1920 about why women shouldn't be allowed to vote. This from their very loving, caring, CONTROLLING husbands. But it's sanctified, apparently, so that was okay.
