The debate about marriage needs an injection of intellectual honesty. To be sure, homosexuality isn’t “normal” in either psychological or biological sense, and attempting to normalize this behavior by calling sex between same-sex adults a “marriage” is disingenuous. However, calling what Britney Spears and her current appendage did a “marriage” is just as degrading to institution, and damage that has been done to fragile fabric of children’s world is real, current and immense.
In order to protect marriage, we need to define it as a sanctified union between grownups who have a clue what they’re doing and are willing to assume responsibility for their choice. Anything less than this – whether it be a union of gays or straights – is a business deal.
