I Just Don’t Get It

May 15, 2008

The California Supreme Court has declared that California’s statutory definition of marriage, refering to a man and a woman is unconstitutional.  You can read the whole 176 pages here.   I am not surprised.  After an analysis of the current Cali Domestic Partnership Act, terms like family, loving relationship, etc., had already been applied to same-sex relationships.  You could hardly be surprised that the Court decided that it was “offensive” not to give the name along with the rights.

No, I was not surprised by that.  What I don’t get is why we don’t see that there is a disparity between the homosexual community and the heterosexual community.  Heterosexuals routinely live together and loathe the idea of getting married.  “It’s just a piece of paper.”  While heteros avoid the marriage bonds like the plague, same-sex couples are desperate for it.  They claim it as a “right.”

So, what I don’t get, is why don’t we heteros see it as a right?  Why wouldn’t we want to have that right?  The Court is right when it observes that calling same-sex couples “married” won’t hurt marriage; we do that quite well, thank you, without their help.

Now it’s time for prophecy.  The court hints that perhaps the state would have the right to rename the whole right of marriage into something else.  Would we care?  Instead of “This is my wife,” it could be, “This is my state approved domestic partner.”  And whose fault will it be?  Well, we will blame it on the gay community.  Surely it can’t be our fault for not appreciating what we haved.

WCA Golf and Cameron

May 6, 2008

If you know him as that nice kid who plays guitar on Sunday morning, you don’t know all about Cameron.  Today he shot a 76 to lead the WCA Golf team into the State Playoffs.  Awesome.  Yes, he is a Sophomore, and has two years left before he takes Covenant College golf by storm.

It is great to see a nice young man do well.  Leo Durocher, take it back–Nice guys do finish first!  Praise God.
