CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 30, 2011          THE BEST COMMENT I’VE READ ON THE PASSAGE OF NEW YORK’S SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LAW GAME FROM MAGGIE GALLAGHER, OF THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE. IN A BRILLIANT USA TODAY EDITORIAL, GALLAGHER WRITES,”IS THERE A REASON WHY MARRIAGE IS THE UNION OF HUSBAND AND WIFE, NOT ONLY IN OUR CULTURE, BUT IN ALMOST EVERY KNOWN HUMAN SOCIETY? “MARRIAGE IS ROOTED IN REAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SAME-SEX AND OPPOSITE SEX UNIONS. ONLY A UNION OF HUSBAND AND WIFE CAN MAKE NEW LIFE AND CONNECT THOSE CHILDREN IN LOVE TO THEIR MOTHER AND FATHER. SOCIETY – AND GOVERNMENT – HAVE A UNIQUE INTEREST IN PROMOTING MARRIAGE TO FURTHER THIS GOAL.”      SHE QUOTES ABE LINCOLN: “IF YOU CALL A TAIL A LEG, HOW MANY LEGS DOES A DOG HAVE?” FOUR, HE ANSWRED, BECAUSE A TAIL IS NOT A LEG, EVEN IF YOU CALL IT ONE.          “GAY MARRIAGE IS NOT AN INCREASE IN LIBERTY; IT IS A GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF AN INSTITUTION THAT GOVERNMENT DID NOT CREATE AND SHOULD NOT REDEFINE. WHEN GOVERNMENT ENDORSES A LIE ABOUT HUMAN NATURE, THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES.” MAGGIE GALLAGHER IN YESTERDAY’S USA TODAY. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
