Traditional Marriage is a union between a man and a woman at the most intimate level. It’s Traditional Marriage not because a group of people decided to make it so. It’s traditional marriage because God made it so and made men and women biologically suitable that makes it so. The two become “one flesh” (Gen. 2:24; Matt. 19:5; Mark 10:7–8; 1 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 5:31).
Just because people do something the same way over a long period of time does not make something fundamentally and morally traditional. People steal, rape, and murder, but no one would call these actions morally and fundamentally traditional.
If marriage is not a God-ordained institution, then all this talk about marriage is useless, no matter who does it.
Of course, if we go down this road, then there’s nothing that has any principled foundation in law. The State could determine that products of conception between two biological units are the property of the State. If the State can determine that property is ultimately owned by the State, who’s to say that children can’t be put in the same category?
The State does not define marriage. That’s already been done.
At a time in our culture when religion is out and anything but religion is in, I’m not sure why homosexuals are pushing for marriage since it’s a relationship rooted in religion. The same religion that describes homosexuality as a perversion also defines marriage as being between one man and one woman.
