There is no Such Thing as Gay Marriage

Yes the courts and the lobbies that bought them off can shove the concept of gay “marriage” down our collective throats and even if perhaps in the not so distant future they will, in Orwellian fashion, force resistant churches to “marry” homosexuals, the union will still not be (it cannot be) marriage.

One man, one woman. I know it’s not difficult to understand, but it can be difficult to accept for fallen creatures hellbent (no pun intended) on defying the statutes of their Maker.

That humans have twisted and spat on God’s design through divorce, broken homes and the like is an even greater testament to man’s natural enmity towards God but it is not an excuse to try to label unions that aren’t marriage as such.

It’s not marriage plain and simple and no amount of forced indoctrination can change reality. As Pat Buchanan remarked in his latest column,

To say two men who live together and engage in sex can be married renders the idea and ideal of marriage meaningless. The court may declare it, but it cannot redefine an institution that nature and nature’s God have already defined. As they say in Texas, you can put lipstick and earrings on a pig, and call her Peggy Sue, but it’s still a pig.

Javier Bardem’s Way of Sticking it to the Church

Mr. Bardem is a Spanish actor who tonight took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in the film, “No Country for Old Men”.

During his acceptance speech, he humorously thanked the Coen Brothers, who directed the work, for putting “one of the most horrible haircuts in history over my head.” (see below)

Leaves one to wonder if Jav realizes that this ‘do has been back in style amongst some sectors of today’s youth. Though, in infants the ubiquitous bowl cut is always fresh, right moms?

To sate my natural curiosity I went over to Wikipedia to read up on the presumably talented Bardem and found an interesting factoid about him. The factoid linked to a story on Univision’s website in which he is quoted as saying,

El actor español Javier Bardem aseguró en París que se casaría “mañana mismo” si fuera homosexual, “sólo para joder a la Iglesia”. [Spanish actor Javier Bardem asserted in Paris that he would marry ‘tomorrow’ if he were homosexual, ‘only to stick it to the church.’]

The Wikipedia’s entry translates “joder” with the f-bomb (“get married tomorrow, just to f*** with the church”). This is a tad harsh and the Spanish word doesn’t carry nearly the vulgarity associated with that English word, I believe my paraphrase to be somewhat more accurate though I won’t deny any colloquial influence.

Nevertheless, I thought it interesting that Bardem would seemingly protest the Church’s (The Roman Catholic Church) stance on homosexuality by theorizing on the best way to be uncharitable towards the very people whose lack of (in Bardem’s view) tolerance and acceptance he disagrees with.

Given the irrationality that is the hallmark of the darkened human mind, Bardem’s words are not surprising.
