Maryland marriage

2007-09-20 14:59:27.505227+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Maryland's highest court fell prey to the "marriage is for procreation" trap and ruled that a state ban on gay marriage was constitutional. Marty Klein takes the easy shots so that I don't have to: Limiting Marriage to Pregnant Brides & Shotgun Weddings:

Even worse is the assumption that the state should restrict the privilege of marriage to those who can have bear children. If that's so, why not test those applying for marriage licenses for fertility instead of STDs? Let's get serious, and prevent people from marrying if they're infertile, post-menopausal, sterilized, unable to get erections, or simply not interested in breeding.

If people are so concerned about protecting the sanctity of marriage, why not use their time to make divorces illegal instead of prohibiting same-sex marriages?
