Marriage and natural law
By William Lloyd Stearman
Getting lost in the debate over same-sex marriage in the District are the following highly relevant eternal verities:
Throughout human existence and in all cultures, marriage has been between men and women for the simple reason that marriage is essential to the propagation of the human race through a structure that creates and nourishes children and fulfills their right to benefit from the unique gifts of both a mother and a father. This most certainly is not, as same-sex marriage advocates assert, a civil rights issue.
The law that rightly bars same-sex marriages also bars marriages that fail to meet established standards for age and blood relationship. Same-sex marriages, like, for example, marriages that are incestuous, clearly contravene natural law, the foundation of civil law and of civil rights.
Indeed, such “Laws of Nature” are enshrined in our Declaration of Independence and deserve our utmost respect.
