THE WISDOM OF TAO


He who knows other men is discerning; he who knows himself is intelligent. He who overcomes others is strong; he who overcomes himself is mighty.

I can't stop thinking about what marriage is and why people are angry that the definition of marriage doesn't mesh with the unnatural lifestyle they indulge in.
maybe it is because there are some groups that are so vocal that every time I see the news, someone is protesting.

def: marriage \mar-ij also mer-\ noun [ME mariage, fr. OF, fr. marier to marry] (14c)
1 a : the state of being married
b : the mutual relation of husband and wife : wedlock
c : the institution whereby men and women are joined in a special kind of social and legal dependence for the purpose of founding and maintaining a family
2 : an act of marrying or the rite by which the married status is effected; esp : the wedding ceremony and attendant festivities or formalities

(C) 1996 Zane Publishing, Inc. and Merriam-Webster, Incorporated


So those who are offended by the labels: main stream and conventional, in fact it seems to me they are quite vocal in denying they are such, want to become part of the most old fashioned conventional relationship that has ever existed.
Isn't that like accusing a radical artist of being too commercial?
So these alternate, abnormal humans want to change the very definition of marriage to exclude the words: husband, wife, men and women.
And the Christian religions are the ones who are wrong. (and GOD?)

good point, I hadn't thought about it in that light.
