Unfortunately, Bell, along with advocates of same sex marriage, has a misguided view of marriage. As noted by Brian Brown, President of the National Association of Marriage, it is “an institution that serves to bind the complementary halves of humanity — male and female — in a publicly declared relationship that is designed to be stable, permanent, exclusive and faithful. Why? Because men and women coming together in holy matrimony offers the potential for children... and children are why the government is interested in marriage in the first place.”
Sorry, Bell, the institution of marriage is not just about love, it has historically been a way to unite couples and propagate our species. Advocates of same sex marriage are making a mockery of this precious institution and opening the door for even more creative interpretations such as three way unions.
Incredibly, the gay threesome in Thailand is not the first “throuple” to become “married.” In August of 2013 in Massachusetts, three lesbian women, Doll, Kitten and Brynn Young were “married” in a commitment ceremony. Through a sperm donor, Kitten became pregnant and the women welcomed their first child last July. Just imagine the weird environment that this poor child will have to navigate. Ideally, children should have a mother and father and be exposed to both male and female role models, not three lesbians, each serving as the child's mother.
This traditional concept of marriage which has served mankind since the beginning of human history is now under assault. In the United States and other countries, there has been a non-stop campaign to extend marriage to same sex couples. Today, 37 states recognize same sex marriages, although it has only been approved by voters in a handful of states. Sadly, judges are disregarding the wishes of the people in several dozen states and mandating same sex marriages.
The mantra from liberal activists is that to deny marital rights to same sex couples is to engage in discrimination. In contrast, it is not discrimination to demand that the definition of marriage be limited to the union of one man and one woman. Homosexuals can have a civil union, a partnership, or whatever kind of arrangement they want, but not a marriage. Once society expands the definition of marriage, where will it end? Can it be expanded to family members, animals or multiple people?
As we can see in Thailand and Massachusetts, three way marriages have now occurred and they could be coming to a community near you.
