Are we redefining marriage by legalizing same-sex marriage?

Asked by: ladiesman
  • Yes, that's what it means to change definition. Right or wrong it is changing the definition.

    For thousands of years marriage has been around and defined as a union between a man and women, specifically. Even in Greek times where homosexuality was more acceptable than it is now that was the definition. Calling a marriage a union between a man and a man or a woman and a woman is like calling a man who likes women a lesbian. So the found request by the homosexual community is to change the definition so to include same sex couples there for by definition "redefining". The issue should be for the rights of same sex couples for civil unions, not to change a word.

  • I believe that legalizing "Same-sex Marriage does redefine Marriage, Chief Justice John Roberts recently said that it does in a hearing before the Supreme Court

    A argument on the merits and reasons for change must be that the change improves society in some manner and isn't deterimental. There are so many reasons why "Same-sex"marriage" is an improvement or advantage in some meaningful way. Traditional marriage, long established by time should be continued as it has proven to have served society well. Traditions aren't good because they're old, they're old because they're good." The Supreme court uses precedents, and such rules as stare decisis) from the Latin "let the decision stand", the principle that binds judges to rely upon the holdings of past judges in deciding cases. Tradition set by lone usage shouldn't be lightly Changed just because of a popular whim of the moment.
    Change has to serve a beneficial end, "same-sex marriage has no legitimate purpose nor does it promote the general welfare of society to recognize a deviate conduct of societies citizens. The Question,asked,"Are we redefining marriage by legalizing same-sex marriage," Chief Justice John Roberts gave his thoughts that it was, redefining Marriage."******Chief Justice John Roberts said gay couples seeking to marry are not seeking to join the institution of marriage."You're seeking to change what the institution is," he said.

  • What? Is there some cosmic effect...

    What I don't understand is the argument against same-sex marriage. Those are against it say that it destroys the institution of marriage. But how is this the case? Do you wake on the next morning and think: gosh, my marriage is no longer worth anything because the government legalized same-sex marriage? Does same-sex marriage have a cosmic affect on everyone and everything?

    It's unsurprising that the Christian right are the ones who mainly oppose same-sex marriage, I mean if you believe that Jesus will return one day to right all of humanity's wrongs, then you are likely to believe that by modernizing an institution that it will initiate a catastrophic event that will ripple throughout the whole world!!!

  • Just extending equal protection

    If/when the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage in all 50 states, we are not saying, "Marriage is a union between two men or two women". Just because we are legalizing same-sex marriage does not mean we are outlawing heterosexual marriage. By legalizing same-sex marriage, we are extending equal protection of the law to same-sex couples.

Modern individualism has already redefined marriage from a bond of two families to a one of two individuals.
