All I Needed to Know About the Latest Ploy for Same-Sex Marriage, I Learned by Listening to Gordon Fox
Only in the deliberately abstruse logogriph of same-sex marriage advocacy could such a statement be made:
“Divorce can be a more fundamental principle than marriage because it has to do with the due process that’s the bedrock of American jurisprudence,” Fox said before the hearing. Prohibiting it effectively denies “a fundamental principle of democracy.”
Ah, the intellectual contortions that follow a denial of the obvious, which, in this case, means a denial that one cannot be granted a divorce from a marriage that is not marriage. With the smoke and mirrors of “due process” claims, Representative Fox wishes to obscure the reality that a couple must be married in order to end their marriage.
Of course, the goal, here, is redefining marriage, not ensuring procedural democracy… or making sense.
