In the movie Jurassic Park (the first one), Jeff Goldblum's character, Ian Malcolm, says the following when referring to the creation of dinosaurs from ancient DNA:
Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, that they didn't stop to think if they should.I find the same argument compelling with reference to most liberal dogma, disguised as "progressive." For example, gays are so intent on radically changing the definition of marriage to force the world into their own image, that they neglect to ask themselves if they should do such a thing. All societies throughout history have developed the institutions of marriage and families based on male and female relationships. What will the experiment of same sex marriage do, when added into society?
No one knows, really. Same sex marriage certainly won't eat the tourists, as the dinosaurs do in Jurassic Park. And it won't cause an immediate collapse of civilization as we know it. But I suspect that it has and will continue to deteriorate the institution of marriage, to continue to neuter male and female relationships, and to help destroy families.
Why would this be the conclusion? It is because the ideal of same sex marriage is based on immoral dogma that upholds an argument based on false premises. The biggest false premise is that same sex marriage is somehow or another related to the American ideal of equality. It can only appeal to equal protection by ignoring the basic social and biological reasons marriage occurs in society.
But none of that matters to liberals, who are so preoccupied with whether or not they could change marriage, that they didn't stop to think if they should.
