SCOTUS Takes Broom to DOMA

The Supreme Court of the United States struck down the Defense of Marriage Act this morning, ruling that it is unconstitutional to deny legally married gay couples their benefits (presumably, Social Security, retirement benefits, etc.).

The ruling is one more blow for traditional marriage that marriage didn’t need.  Many Americans, including myself, are on the fence about this.  No one wants to seem “intolerant” in this politically correct age.  The fear for straight people isn’t about denying someone’s civil rights, but something more fundamental:  minding someone else’s business.

Our secular side says that it’s none of our business if George Takei and his “husband” are married and George wants to remember Brad in his will, or vice versa, or Brad gets George’s Social Security benefits if Mr. Sulu dies first.  Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto George what is George’s.

For those of who are Christians, the problem can be summed up in three words:  Sodom and Gomorrah.  Some meteor or asteroid fall-out really did take out those two cities, well-known for their proclivities; ultimately, the asteroid took out a huge chunk out of a mountain in the Swiss Alps.  Supposedly it was a chunk of this mountain that traveled some 3,000 (?) miles back to smite Sodom and Gomorrah, wiping them out and turning Lot’s wife into a pillar of salt which archaeologists say can still be seen in the desert (if you know where to look).

When it comes to money – the love of which, Jesus said, is the root of all evils – Americans, at least, are loth to criticize anyone (except the rich) for keeping what they earn.  It’s okay for George and Brad to share their accumulated wealth between themselves, but Mitt and Ann Romney, it seems, are evil Capitalists for leaving their wealth in their wills to their children and grandchildren.

The state of marriage is already in a state of decline.  Why in the world gay couples want to marry, when they see how badly married their heterosexual counterparts are, is a mystery.  For centuries, men have accepted the fact that their shrill spouses wear the pants in the family.  Wives, for centuries, have made sure that their husband accepts that fact.

It’s true and women regularly joke about it, support one another in this accepted fact of married life, and encourage one another in some very bad behavior.  Maybe homosexuals have the right idea.  Maybe men can only live happily with other men, and women with other women.  This is a strictly un-Biblical, unChristian thought, but possibly true.  Divorce rates, with men fleeing their harpy wives for younger harpy wives, and breadwinning wives deciding it’s much more pleasant to go to work, send their kids to daycare and hire a maid to clean their house than to share power with a husband are bearing out this unfortunate trend.

The result is that men will go happily on their way being slobs around the house, have full control of the remote, and never have to change a diaper, while women can go to work, have someone else clean the house and look after the kids, and spend themselves into oblivion.  No more wives nagging husbands to pick up their clothes or change the baby’s diaper.  No more husbands going berserk when they see the credit card or phone bill or insisting on watching the Hunting Channel when the lawn needs mowing.  Men who like to hit women can go to the gym and hit a punching bag instead.  Women who like to shriek and yell at husbands will just have to buy a recording device, record their hour-long rants about coming home late or early, and then play it back to themselves when they wonder why they aren’t married.

Heaven help you, Gay People.  Remember, the vow says, “For better or for worse.”  Don’t say you weren’t warned.  Living together, even for years, isn’t the same as being married.  Don’t say you weren’t warned.

  1. Remember the popularity and hilarity of the movie Mr. Mom in the 80s? It’s not as unusual today for women to be either the primary breadwinner in the family or to have a more prominent career. But is it really that acceptable for both partners? What happens when you are a highly ambitious woman married to a less ambitious man? Or what if you are a man married to one of these over-achieving women? A marriage between these two can be a blissful balance or a recipe for a devastating divorce.

  2. The fundamental problem is that Christian women are being given get out of marriage free cards while Christian men are being told man up and marry these Christian women . This selective moral softness from Christians combines with our legal system which rewards women who commit divorce theft and creates millions of fatherless children . Your husband looked at porn? Dump him and find another man! Keep in mind this isn’t some corner case example I’ve made up. This is from the movie Christians profess shows their views on marriage. Moreover, Sheila isn’t just another commenter on the internet, she is a respected author and speaker on the topic of marriage for Christian women. All men need to understand this; if your wife decides to divorce you for another man, there will be well respected Christians lining up to justify her decision and place all of the blame on you. If that means conflating viewing pornography with actual adultery, so be it. This is true even in cases where the wife was withholding sex in an effort to control the husband. She even excuses the wife lining up the other man while still married.

    thanks..great post…

  4. This book is based on over 3,000 interviews conducted by Molloy and his researchers. They interviewed couples coming out of marriage license bureaus, and then a control group. The results reflect the statistical tendencies of marriage. Many of the lessons are common sense, but what sets this book apart is its specificity and the statistical backup for its assertions.
