Wahoo! Another Victory for Traditional Marriage

The Supreme Court of the State of Washington, an otherwise liberal state, handed over another victory for traditional marriage when they upheld Washington's ban on gay marriage saying lawmakers can restrict marriage to a man and woman.

This makes traditional marriage, state victory number 6 in just over 3 weeks.

In a 5-4 decision, the State Supreme Court kept the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) law in tact regardless of the 19 couples seeking to abolish it via judicial fiat. These judges said that states can restrict the definition of marriage through the people's legislators.

Let me say it one more time, MARRIAGE IS NOT A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT, like that of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The government recognition of marriage through the licensing process provides benefits to a married couple. Why would Uncle Sam provide benefits? The government has a selfish motivation, and intrinsic interest. Happily married couples make healthy children; healthy children contribute to a healthy, vibrant society. The best way for the government to attain a healthy, vibrant, growing society is to provide incentives for marriage. The reason the government provides benefits to encourage marriages is that the establishment of a healthy progeny is the nation's most significant role.

The government should not care about preferences for gay sex. If it is not the government’s role to approve or disapprove of gay and lesbian sexual habits. The government simply has no incentive to recognize homosexual marriage? None.

Thoughtful Readers Speak:
That's very true. Marriage, for all the govermental and constitutional reasons you point out, is no right at all, and goverment has no business with it.

The conclusion, which is obvious here, is that nobody, heterosexual or homosexual, should be allowed to be legally married. GET GOVERNMENT OUT OF THE MARRIAGE BUSINESS NOW.
That's a possible conclusion---except...

The government has an interest in people getting married so it provides financial (and other) incentives for married folk. The reason it does this is to ensure the perpetuation of society through happy children that come from that family.
It's not a victory for traditional marriage, as defined by the Bible. It's just a secular nod to a secular standard which is marriage in name only. What we call a legal "marriage" is nothing more than a sugar-coated civil union.
