Judge Washes Away More Than Marriage (March 26, 2014)

The federal judge in Nashville who ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in Tennessee said there was a rising tide in favor of such marriages, but that tide is going to wash away more than marriage.

If Tennessee is constitutionally required to accept any marriage so long as it is valid in another state, then part of our state’s sovereignty will be “washed away.” Tennesseans will no longer control what marriage means in our state.

But worse yet are the results of a study by Oxford professor J.D. Unwin of 80 primitive tribes and six known civilizations over a 5,000-year period. His uncontroverted research showed that when societies embrace sexual license, they have always fallen and never recovered.

The rising tide for same-sex marriage is washing away state sovereignty and perhaps the very way of life we have enjoyed.
