A small data point from the sodo-marriage debates July 29, 2014

Many readers will know that my family and I relocated from  north Dallas suburb to Irving to be nearer to the local FSSP parish.  I have been very glad to make some truly trivial sacrifices along the way so that my family can enjoy assisting at Mass much more frequently and generally being much more involved in parish life.  It has been an enormous blessing for all of us. I am so glad we moved.

We had a bit of a rough time with our first realtor, but after some sturm and drang found a great house just minutes from the parish.  God truly smiled on us in this.  But one thing we did not realize at the time we bought our wonderful house was that our next door neighbors consisted of an all-male couple.  We found out a day or two after we moved in.  There were initially two guys there (yes, this story gets a bit……involved), one of whom is highly “passable” as “straight” and the other less so.  Later there got to be a third guy, and there were also many men (and sometimes women) coming and going at all hours of day and night.  It has been a little bit of a circus.

Now, some of these were family and business associates, so it may not have been completely sordid, but it has been strange.  Nevertheless, through it all there was the “less straight” hispanic guy and the more straight partner.  They moved in several years ago and spent a ton of money fixing up their house into something really very nice.  But I found out last night that the Hispanic guy is moving out and that their relationship is now over.

I have no idea the hows or whys, any relation to the constant stream of visitors, and don’t want to know. It’s quite beside the point.  The point is that these guys were perfect candidates for the kind of couples that demand marriage be “redefined,” or really destroyed, so they can get tax benefits, have a big party, and all the rest.  They were “stable.”  They’d been together for  years.  But when things fell apart, apparently very recently, less straight dude started packing and will be gone within a few days.

The point of all this is that while just one small datapoint, it is illustrative of many of the problems and outright falsehoods being put forth regarding this most morally offensive of lifestyles and the prevarication that it any way can be compared to marriage.  Aside from exceedingly rare exceptions, these couples are not stable. They are not monogamous. There was a lot of obvious ickiness going on.  Living next door has been an object lesson in the mass falsehoods being perpetrated by adherents of this lifestyle and their allies on the ideological left regarding its true nature and radical difference from marriage. Unless one wants to consider 12 time divorced swingers as the default marriage nowadays.

But even more, marriage simply isn’t what these guys or any other perverse combo is.  Marriage is the contract between a man and woman for the reservation of those faculties ordered towards the creation of children exclusively for one another.  On any number of fronts, fake marriage between two men, three women, a man, a dog, and an orangutan, or anything else is just that, fake.

I picked the below from JP Sonnen’s site, I pray we have more defenders of marriage who can speak so clearly and eloquently on this subject. Ryan Anderson absolutely destroys the special pleading and morally bankrupt (and philosphically unjustifiable) argument of the poor lost soul desiring sodo-marriage:

What is tragic is that so many people are so wholly malformed by the culture, their own whims, and the dread effects of centuries of protestant/endarkenment/rationalist thinking that they simply cannot get through their heads: MARRIAGE HAS BEEN, IS, AND EVER WILL BE STRICTLY A UNION OF MAN AND WOMAN!  But as we see above, no matter how eloquently argued, this basic truth that 99.99999% of all people in Western civilization knew as an absolute metaphysical truth even a few decades ago, is now utterly lost on a huge and growing swath of the population.

Because everything, even timeless, bedrock institutions of all humanity, should be subject to the whims of moment and the lowest desires of our loins, and the highly unpredictable but certainly incredibly destructive consequences be damned.

See, your family’s move to the neighborhood has already started to bring about some good fruit. Good riddance to the n’er-do-wells in the area, says I! We had a similar experience back when we lived in Rowlett. A couple of lesbians (with children, sad to write) from CA moved into the recently Mormon-occupied home across the street. It took less than a year of fasting and praying to get them to move out of the neighborhood.

I can’t imagine anything worse than living next door to a Mexican bottom pansy. No mucho macho there, just two brown heels in the air screaming “oh papi!

And the sodomites would have laws to make it illegal if the previous owners had said “no way wanna-be senorita are we going to inflict you and your “daddy” on this neighborhood. No sale — try the Castro District.”
