ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In his letter to the editor on Wednesday, “Homosexuals’ next demand: tax preferences,” Louis Samuel brought up the question of legally married homosexuals and taxation. This problem would never arise if marriage were properly defined.

The world’s major religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) and most countries recognize marriage as a contract between one man and one woman for the purpose of using sex to have children. More precisely, marriage is a sexual contract between a man and a woman who can commit acts fit for the begetting of new human life. Homosexuals having sexual acts among themselves cannot fulfill this requirement, and, hence, they cannot be “married.”

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig. Definitions are not arbitrary. They must be based on objective reality.
