1 + 1 = ??
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Sep 30, 2005
For your weekend homework assignment, explain why this is not likely to happen in your community.
Keep in mind that, as you write, Christian activists in Massachusets will be circulating a petition to amend that state's constitution, so that the document would define marriage explicitly as a union between one man and one woman.
Seems obvious, doesn't it? Yet in Massachusetts, 4 fuzzy-thinking judges balked at the "man and woman" part: the gender element of the marital equation. Who's to say that next time-- maybe not too far in the future, maybe somewhere near where you live-- another set of liberal judges won't have trouble with the mathematical part?
Is "1 + 1" any more self-evident than "man + woman?" Explain.
