Was Samual Williams Referencing Gay Marriage?

Founder's Quote Daily

“It is not necessary to enumerate the many advantages, that arise from this custom of early marriages. They comprehend all the society can receive from this source; from the preservation, and increase of the human race. Every thing useful and beneficial to man, seems to be connected with obedience to the laws of his nature, the inclinations, the duties, and the happiness of individuals, resolve themselves into customs and habits, favourable, in the highest degree, to society. In no case is this more apparent, than in the customs of nations respecting marriage.” –Samuel Williams, The Natural and Civil History of Vermont, 1794

Frankly, the title of my blog is preposterous!

The idea of homosexual marriage would have been as unthinkable to Samuel Williams and his cohort, as it should be to our own.

 In America, homosexuals are at liberty (for better or worse, I judge worse) to form legal partnerships. Homosexuals may call such partnerships whatever they wish… with one exception. We should not allow them to conscript the title, marriage, from traditional heterosexual unions.

Among other things, sociocultures are constructed of words and their meanings. The word marriage, along with its sacred meaning and symbolism, has formed the foundation of our American culture from its very beginning.

To let the homosexual radical political-action groups force America to frame homosexual partnerships as “marriages” will forever destroy the historical and religious meaning of this word.

If we allow this to happen, it will be another major victory among  the many successful contemporary assaults, by radical liberal/progressive/humanists, upon America’s traditional Judeo/Christian traditions and religions…… 

Another nail in America’s coffin.
