    Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Mormons, Sikhs and Hindus Join to Fight Homosexual "Marriage"

    - California churches are joining together in a determined effort in support of Proposition 8, the November ballot referendum that opposes the California Supreme Court's ruling in May allowing same-sex marriages to be performed in the state. Organizers of the ambitious interfaith alliance plan to coordinate a synchronized expression of support of Proposition 8 by having 1 million people place signs on their yards, which say "Yes on Proposition 8", in unison late in September. "This is a rising up over a 5,000-year-old institution that is being hammered right now," said Jim Garlow, pastor...

    And DU is livid over this.

    5,000 year old institution? For the first 4,800 years it bears absolutely no resemblance to the modern institution. Marriage has changed and morphed just as much as any part of human culture. Only in modern times have we had the luxury of actually marrying out of love.

    If we really want to stay true to the original institution, we should be forcing girls to marry as soon as they hit puberty (and knock them up asap) into polygamist households. I hardly think gay marriage does anything to tarnish the reputation of the 'institution'....

    Hey, cut the Bronze Age cultists some slack. They can't very well go after witches these days. They would look silly.

    Nope, we're to busy getting the fires stoked for the blasphemers.

    It's nice to see all religions coming together instead of fighting but it's not so nice to see them coming together against the gays.
