And the development I’m referring to isn’t the broadening support for same-sex marriage, which a clear majority of Americans now favor. No, I’m referring to the fact that in a great many circles, endorsement of same-sex marriage has rather suddenly become nonnegotiable. Expected. Assumed. Proof of a baseline level of enlightenment and humanity. Akin to the understanding that all people, regardless of race or color, warrant the same rights and respect.
Even beyond these circles, the debate is essentially over, in the sense that the trajectory is immutable and the conclusion foregone. Everybody knows it, even the people who still try to stand in the way. The legalization of same-sex marriage from north to south and coast to coast is merely a matter of time, probably not much of it at that.
No one is denying any individuals respect, unless they are named Brendan Eich.
Basic falsehoods, e.g. 2+2=5, remain unacceptable. What has changed is that common sense has suffered a setback. As a part of societal collapse, you can keep useful traditions like you keep your doctor.
What the liars will be shocked to discover is that this “victory” is useless. Calling their pet Yorkies “children” does not offspring make. Meanwhile, the un-confused will continue to raise actual children, and teach them the truth.
This falsehood is as transient as a campaign promise, and the judgement will come down, on us as it did on the Israelites. Lord, have mercy.
