"Throughout time marriage has evolved from an economic standard to that of today's socially understood spiritual connection between two people. In history and throughout without many exceptions it is noted that the bond is formally for maintaining, strengthening, and encouraging genetic, social, and economic progression between families and above all bearing an heir. However in the modern context though the fusing of families for political reasons has slowed greatly that gap has been filled with the philosophical values of the religious and as such marriage as a tradition worldwide has become functionally an action dedicated to the conjoining of two people before a deity. To attempt to differentiate and regress back to a time where it was a standard of economic progression as a means to validate modern day homosexual practices within the context of modern day marriage is no different than to claim that the gallows should be returned within the context of modern day crime and punishment. It has no place within the modern times and all arguments proposing that homosexual marriage should be allowed are working from angles which pick and choose the elements of social history to defend an empty stance.
Homosexual marriage rituals do not exist in the modern world, have never existed by-and-large in any society ( including Grecian eras and other popularly misguiding concepts ), and violate all tenets and purposes behind the concept whether it be the economic attention to political standing and the functional heir system or the more modern spiritual outlook that revolves around Judea-Christian Law throughout a third of the world, including this country. To be forced to take on the wishes of a minority using red herrings as a means to debate their "rights" is incorrect. To attempt to liken this discussion to any before is also incorrect; whereas we made mistakes in judgment relating to segregation of races that has no biblical context and holds no economic viability therefore not defiling the concept of marriage but instead being an offshoot of Manifest Destiny. Homosexual marriage does not meet these criteria and clearly violates both."
