Two bolts does not equal a bolt and a nut

The Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments about whether California’s Proposition 8 that defines marriage as only being between a man and a woman is constitutional.  Allowing two men or two women to “marry” has been coined “marriage equality” by proponents of the concept.
Let's think about this logically for a moment.  Can two bolts or two nuts perform the same function as a bolt and a nut?  Would you be able to assemble, say, a car, with only bolts or only nuts?  Of course not.  Is a banana the same as an orange.  Can we have fruit equality.  Is that not unfair.  After all, all fruits should be in the shape of a banana, or should it be an orange?
God created males and females to reproduce when the penis and vagina come together through a loving union in marriage.  Two penises cannot come together in such a loving union to create new life no matter how hard one may try.  Two vaginas cannot come together to create new life either.  If you don’t believe in the Creator, you can call this fact natural law or any other name.
“Marriage equality” is not about marriage.  It is about compelling people who do not accept homosexuality as the norm to accept it on some level through government compulsion.  It is a violation of freedom of thought, speech and religion. This violation of freedom of thought has already occurred as Catholic adoption agencies have been forced to shut down to avoid having to provide adoption services for homosexual couples.
If the Supreme Courts decides to make same sex “marriage” legal, than freedom of speech will be curtailed, as those who believe in marriage between only a man and a woman will be unwelcome in public schools and other public venues, effectively curtailing freedom of speech for millions.  They may also be subject to penalties or even legal action for speaking out against homosexuality.  Read about intolerance and persecution of those who believe in marriage between only a a man and a woman here.  There is hope in the fact that the Supreme Court will make a rational decision, and not a politicized decision.   As reported by the High Impact Leadership Coalition:
Last November, a federal appeals court in Nevada pointed out homosexuals are not, in fact, being denied the right to marry, as the term “marriage” has been long understood. A lesbian couple had sued the state, seeking to overturn Nevada’s ban on gay marriage under the Fourteenth Amendment. Wrote Judge Robert Jones,
Like heterosexual persons, they [homosexuals] may not marry members of the same sex. A homosexual man may marry anyone a heterosexual man may marry, and a homosexual woman may marry anyone a heterosexual woman may marry.
Judge Jones went on to point out that homosexuals have little cause to identify with historically oppressed minorities in the United States, observing that, “Homosexuals have not historically been denied the right to vote, the right to serve on juries, or the right to own property.” Judge Jones starts with the assumption, as we all should, that “marriage” means what it has always meant in America: the union of one man and one woman. If we begin with that reality, the notion that homosexuals are being denied equal protection under the law becomes absurd.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 26th, thousands will rally on the National Mall for the March for Marriage.  They will march to the Supreme Court and hear from well known speakers.  I urge you to join me in taking a stand for marriage and the well being of our society, our children and all future generations.  Meet on the mall at 10th St.and Madison Drive by the Museum of Natural History before 9:30 a.m.  You can find more details here:  See you there!
