The proponents of homosexual marriage want to redefine the meaning of a word that has been in common use for centuries (“Judge’s ruling gives boost to same-sex marriage,” Page 1, Thursday).
This smacks of George Orwell’s “1984.” Do the proponents of legalized homosexual unions really think governmentsshould have the power to change the meaning of common words? On the other hand, opponents of same-sex marriage seem to be saying that governments should be able to determine which sexes may live together and then dole out rights and privileges on the basis of that determination.
It seems to me both sides in this controversy need to step back and take a hard look at the implied side effects of what they are promoting - and then try to find a sensible compromise.
