We rightfully expect the wisdom of restraint from judges, but judges are human. So sometimes judges exercise their passions. Thus as Brian Fairrington notes below (from here), four judges in California decided to conduct some daring legal exploration on their own. These judges decided to equate same-sex “marriage” with traditional marriage.
Are same-sex “marriage” and traditional marriage equivalent?
To be funny, humor has to contain an element of truth. Sometimes, however, the author of a cartoon does not see the truth. Nonetheless, even when the cartoonist misses the truth, his cartoons may still teach us.
Such is the case above (from here). What Steve Benson wants us to believe is that four judges in California equalized the scales of justice. Because Benson forgets a certain aspect of reality, what the picture portrays is not what he intended.
Is it wholly beyond our imaginations to add a few panels to Benson’s cartoon? What will happen as time passes? What will happen to those scale of justice? Will a same-sex “marriage” ever bear any fruit of its own?
As Chuck Asay notes here (see below), same-sex “marriage” is a dead end.
Same-sex “marriage” is not marriage; it is an exercise in frivolity. At best, a same-sex union can produce entertainment.
Because there are no children, a same-sex “marriage” protects no one. What same-sex “marriage” does is provide the government’s sanction on a peculiar sexual relationship that tends to be both mentally and physically harmful to the participants.
