True marriage — that between one man and one woman — is the preeminent and most fundamental of all human social institutions.
It is a relationship defined by nature and protected by the natural law that binds all men and women. Its foundation is in the order of creation. Civil institutions do not create marriage nor can they create a right to marry for those incapable of marriage.
Marriage was established by the Creator with its own nature, essential properties and purpose that include the procreation of new human lives.
Sadly, marriage has been reduced to another commodity in our culture.
In an age when children can be manufactured and grown in the body of a surrogate when wanted — while millions are being aborted because they are not wanted — “civil rights” are being manufactured by agencies of the civil government. They are multiplying, while real rights, fundamental human rights endowed upon us by God, are being taken away. Let’s pray that our Supreme Court will do the right thing and uphold the traditional meaning of marriage.
