It is a bunch of short stories from hundreds of years after the fact without any hard evidence or even anecdotal evidence it holds any true words at all. Why should we honor such a book? Might as well honor Archie's Digest. It might help you get through life but I don't need it and I shouldn't have it forced upon me, especially at an early age in a public school.
Actually God is the problem for the anti-God crowd friend. He's the one that defined marriage, and I'm pretty sure the Lord's been around a lot longer than myself. So if you have a problem with "progress" being "held back", then your beef is with your Creator.
Actually there was no definition of marriage until the God Squad required the govt to make one so as to make life difficult enough for all the homos to repent and see the straight light. I'm sure I have been around a lot longer than you too so maybe you should listen to me. He is not my creator, I had 2, their names are Paul & Kate, they are living, tangible entities. You might believe some old dude in the clouds made you but it just ain't true....your parents had sex is what really happened!
Just an FYI...I am not anti-god as you put it. I don't believe in him/her/it myself but if you need to believe to get you through the day without killing yourself or someone else then I am pro-god. Whatever it takes for you to be happy with you is just fine with me.
On the topic of the OP....
I believe the case is being allowed to move forward to establish a precedent upon which any further case would rest. I also believe the crown may see it as a cheaper alternative than starting from scratch on another case disputing the same question. I think we need this issue put to bed sooner than later and setting the precedent (even over a dead guy) will obviously move it toward a conclusion.
