From something called MercatorNet (BTW – Mercator? Doesn’t that sound like something from the Toho monster gene pool? Godzilla…Mothra…Rodan…Ghidorah…and Mercator…?), christianist propagandameister Jennifer Roback Morse poses a question that she doesn’t actually want analytically answered:
What is owed to the child?
Of course, she posed that question during the course of a fit of typically anti-gay, theocracy-laden, faux-intellectual mental masturbation about:
allow[ing] the citizens of Minnesota the opportunity to vote on the proposed marriage amendment.
Notice what she follows that with:
Same sex marriage redefines marriage. Redefining marriage redefines parenthood. Redefining marriage affects the balance of power between the state and civil society. The citizens of this state have the right to make up their own minds about these important issues.
Then shouldn’t they have the opportunity to vote on things that actually affect the lives of every child in Minnesota?
Like the redefinition of corporation to be equal (in reality, superior) to a human being….
Like the de facto absolute power of life and death that corporations are allowed to exercise over natural beings…
Like the corporate greed that rationalizes the de facto absolute power of life and death that corporations are allowed to exercise over natural beings…
Like the corporate greed that ensures that more children than ever will go hungry and grow up without sufficient education…
Like corporate-spurred wars……………….?
Or does her on-the-fly concept of ‘christian’ (not to mention ‘American’) not feel the need to address those realities?
