If marriage is not defined and and protected in a society as a man and a woman in an exclusive and matrimonial relationship with the view to procreating children and being a family — then all relationships can be called a family and any combination of persons (or…) can be called a “marriage.”
So, welcome to “Throuples”. Now that America has cast aside real marriage, three people in love are now called a “family” and those in this new “family” are called a “throuple.” If you think I am making this up just Google the word “throuple.” Or, read this representative article which presents “throuples” not as the wave of the future, but the reality now. Here is an article from a Christian perspective warning us of this new perversion.
Modern, politically correct people ask, “Who has the right to tell me who I love? Does the government really think it can tell me how many people I can be married to or who I sleep with?”
We currently have laws that forbid polygamy, but how long do you think they will last now that the word “marriage” has become a fluid, changing and all-encompassing? Polygamy laws will be deemed repressive and discriminatory, violating the civil rights of people in love. Polygamy (bad context) will be changed to something like “polymarriage” or “polyamory” (good sounding).
Fifty years ago no one would have dreamed “marriage” could ever be defined as anything other than one man and one woman. What will we be accepting in another fifty years? Incest – a family affair? Pedophilia? Who is to deny a man the love of his intended fixation? There is already a Man-Boy Love Association.
Mabe bestiality? Do you know there are already over 100,000 who practice bestiality in Germany alone? Bestiality brothels are taking Germany by storm. Some countries are banning bestiality, not because it is wrong but because it is violating the rights of animals. But in the long run there will be push for legal relationships, even marriages with non-human lovers? What are the limits if “everything is OK for consenting…”
Enough of that.
Our world is going crazy. Get rid of God and Christian morality and everything is OK. As Dostoevsky has one of his character say in Brothers Karamazov, “If God does not exist, everything is permitted.”
If we as Christians do what we must — stand for sanity, truth, natural law and morality — we will be called bigots and haters. We are already deemed as such for speaking out against abortion, homosexuality and “gay marriage.” We will pay the price for our faithfulness to God, the Scriptures and the infallible teaching of the Church.
Hold on to your hats my friends. We in America — we are in for an interesting ride.
Excuse me, I have to go to church now. I am going to pray for my grandchildren.
