Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded mission of destruction?

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 At 11.20.57 AmWith all that's going on around the world today, there are plenty of headlines to which one might ascribe the phrase "mission of destruction." Here's the American Family Association's choice:

Two same-gender couples have filed suit to overturn Mississippi's constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman – an amendment approved by 86 percent of Mississippi voters in 2004.
...
[Buddy Smith, executive vice president of American Family Association] points out the push-back is nothing new – and was expected. "But it's coming from a very radical group that not only intends to redefine marriage, but from an understanding of the Bible of what marriage is they simply want to destroy it. It's a mission of destruction."

If by destruction, he means destroying the AFA's long-held ability to fundraise off their deep and cruel antagonism toward certain neighbors and their families, then sure, destruction is part of the mission. Otherwise, it's much more a mission of peace. And a mission for love. And a mission for registries, open bars, and CAKE!!!

No word on what sort of mission Mr. Smith would ascribe to ISIS or Ebola or war-ravaged nations that are constantly fighting to no avail. But it's shockingly easy for me to believe, based on his and his employers' own rhetoric, that he'd put that actual destruction lower on the list.
