1 First As Tragedy, Then As Farce  Sat, Apr 28, 2012 7:32:48am

Forcing miserable people who hate each other to live together no matter what sounds like a GREAT idea. What could possibly go wrong?

Society certainly benefits from every news story that begins with the phrase “Before turning the gun on himself,”

There’s a lot of highfalutin’ language there explaining how wonderful it is when two people become one flesh and all that. The problem is that it is men talking about absorbing women into their legal and physical existence. I’m not hearing as much from the women.

Marriage at its best is truly wonderful (we’re coming up on 35 years-mostly pretty terrific) but not everyone has this experience. In a modern world gender roles need to change to survive and the institution of marriage needs to change with it. This will bring new challenges, but I think humans are up to the task.

Another tiresome lecture about how things were better in the good old days, which weren’t really all that good for a lot of people. Noticed he mentioned his opposition to gay marriage.

It’d be a lot easier to handle lectures about how stuff was better back in the olden days if the writers acknowledged stuff like how wife and child beating were simply accepted.

And you can’t be pro-marriage and opposed to gay marriage.

This is an opinion piece.

It was posted because of the standing of the author.

This is not an endorsement of his views, though I would add some of his opinions do have merit.

re: #5 researchok

I understand this is an opinion piece and there is nothing wrong with your posting it. My question is why is a retired bishop’s opinion so particularly important? It looks to me like he’s just trying to go back to those good old days that Obdicut mentioned-and reintroduce compulsory religion.
