In my seven years on Facebook, I have seen some pretty crazy posts from some of my friends on the irreligious left. One once suggested that the Virgin Mary should have had an abortion. Another said that Sarah Palin should have both her vagina and mouth stapled shut in order to keep retarded things from coming out of her body. Neither post got the user banned from Facebook. And I’m happy about that. Lunatics need to be exposed in a free and open marketplace of ideas. As Justice Brandeis once said, sunlight is a powerful disinfectant.
However, as some of you may know, the Facebook thought police censored me recently. They actually suspended my fan page and my personal page for twelve hours just for posting the following quote: “Gay couples do not deserve equal benefits because they do not equally benefit society.” This simple remark was characterized as a “violation of Facebook community standards.” Personally, I think it was retarded to abort my post. But I’ll staple my mouth shut before I get into any further trouble.
Admittedly, I’ve always thought that promoting sodomy was a violation of community standards. But that is far more brazen than what I was saying with my simple little post about marriage. Let me elaborate on my thesis, which is one that I think many Americans can agree with even in these relativistic times.
1. Traditional marriage tames men. Men are animals and they need to be tamed. When they marry women, they tend to become more responsible citizens. But that doesn’t happen when two men “marry.” It’s like putting two animals in a cage. Gay males define “faithfulness” as telling their partner when they’re going out with another man “for the evening.” Faithfulness in the gay male community doesn’t actually mean monogamy. And that’s why gays tend to lead shorter, less healthy lives even if they are in pretend marriages. The government has no interest promoting this facade.
2. Marriage protects women. Let’s take a walk on Sesame Street and play a variation of “which one of these is not like the others.” Here are our choices: 1. Single men, 2. Married men, 3. Single women, 4. Married women. Which one is by far the least likely to be victimized by crime? The answer is #4. Married women are easily the safest among these four demographic groups. And the reason is not just because they are married to some adult. It is because they are married to men who are stronger and better able to protect them.
