Audio: 'Fool' me once, shame on James Bowman
Think marriage equality for same-sex couples constitutes something other than a "drastic or far-reaching change to 'the institution of marriage'"? Well then you are nothing more than a "fool," says a contributor to this Focus on the Family news report:
Well then in that case, Mr. Bowman, "fools" we will gladly be. Because those of us in or around areas where same-sex marriage is a reality know that there is nothing drastic about gay and lesbian inclusion into the system. We also know that addition does not equate subtraction. And we know that there's nothing far-reaching about the kind of hand movement that checks two male or female boxes on a licensing form rather than one of each.
In fact, in a world where thousands of same-sex couples are legally marrying without any discernible societal disruption, one can quite easily argue that it's the "protect marriage" proponents who are take the anti-intellectual position here. But we don't have to use ad hominem words like "fool" to assess our opposition. "Wrong" will do just fine.
