IT’S A LONG ROAD THAT HAS NO TURNING
Women were not allowed to be doctors….because we’ve never allowed women to be doctors.
Negroes were not allowed to sit at the front of the bus….because we’ve never allowed blacks to do so.
Women were not considered ‘people’ and allowed to vote….because we’ve never allowed them to.
Women were not permitted to be priests and preachers….because they were never permitted.
We won’t authorize same-sex marriage….because it’s never been authorized.
Even if we’re forced to, we won’t allow them to call it marriage because we never have before.
It could be called circular logic, if there were any logic to it.
