Brad and Angelina – Freedom Fighters!

Filed under: America — kcillini77 @ 7:47 am

This is going to be quick, because I really need to get to work and 435 is down to 2 lanes at one point due to construction. But I had to mention this. While getting my traffic and weather 411 this morning I was also told the “news” that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have announced they will not be getting married until ALL Americans have the same right. I just had to laugh. Here’s a couple that has ditched all previous marriage commitments to go on to the next “true love” taking a moral stand on the issue of marriage. Now, don’t misunderstand my point. I realize that divorce is not unforgivable, and the fact that these two people have been divorced and gone on to other relationships does not make me any better than them. But the ridiculous stand they are taking to keep themselves from another bond of matrimony further illustrates that gay marriage is not an issue of equal rights for all. It is wholly based on a misunderstanding of marriage in the first place – a redefining of marriage as a matter of convenience. Marriage, to those pushing for the legalization of ALL marriages, is saying “I’ve fallen in love with this person, and until I fall out of love with him/her/it, I want to share their company benefits and have a better tax situation.” Of course the financial aspects are inconsequential to international movie stars, so with an understanding of marriage like that there is absolutely NO reason to get married, and the opportunity to demonstrate apparent compassion for those who cannot enter into such a legal status presents itself to them.

Anyway, time to hit the road. Enjoy your day.
