Sometimes it doesn't take Legal Arguments, Past Cases, or Court Decisions for a dose of reality to slap you right in the kisser!
The Right Wing's War on Marriage Equality is 'over'...Clarence Thomas is essentially putting up the White Flag...but don't tell Christian Conservative America! it shakes their traditional beliefs right down to their long bigoted roots! Get out of that cave, man!! the world, does keep evolving!...even, if you remain hiding from that darkness inside your mind! Marriage Equality is here stay!...it's on the right side of conventional wisdom! besides, we live in a multi-culturally Pluralistic Society...so, grow up and live with it!!
"Free yourself from the rigid conduct of tradition and open yourself to the new forms of probability".~~~ Hans Bender
We're in the 21st Century!...aside from basic Conservative values, why are they so frightened from moving away from the Status Quo?...Tradition?
"Traditional Family Values"...traditional this, traditional that...it's all a matter of trying to keep up with the past, instead of advancing as a Nation, into the future. The past is Dead! We live in the present to build the future for our next generation. Tradition? or is it the fear of the unknown? When there's no planning or policies to carry on, into the future...there's going to be a certain amount of reluctance on moving forward...they're scared to death!! Equal Rights for Gays, Interracial dating, and marriage...Clarence should've known better, considering his own Marriage...we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto!
It's a whole new world out there, and if certain sectors of our populace don't conform...Society is just going to leave them behind, living their lives as if it was a distant memory. Don't hang on to tradition, it's quickly fading away!...just look at the Washington Redskins...and how the sons and daughters of so many purist "Redskins" fans, are turning their backs on the 'glorious' tradition of the name.
Conservatives might feel like Tevye: ". . . without our traditions, our lives would be as shaky as . . .as a fiddler on the roof . . ." And, like Tevye, who looked at 'tradition' as a way to keep his family together...but his future had other thoughts in their minds...Conservatism fears the same fate!
