  •  The original purpose of marriage, from the Romans (3+ / 0-)

    on, was the preservation of wealth in a family line.  (And, of course, the Church forbade marriage of the clergy in the late middle ages---didn't want to dilute the church's wealth by having it pass INTO family lines.)

    Therefore, the conservative view should rightly be that same-sex couples should be encouraged to procreate (by any means, including adoption) in order to fulfill that wealth preservation mandate.

    A bit OT, I know, but supporters of traditional marriage are supporters of wealth, and likewise mergers of corporations, who (corps are people, my friend, so they get 'who') are champions of wealth consolidation.  Even if said corporations are of the same sex.  How you tell what sex a corp is?  I really don't know, but I suspect you need to turn them upside down and examine the nasty bits.

    And corporations do procreate to pass on their wealth by having children (wholly-owned spinoff divisions) or by adopting them (buy outs).  The funny things is that these parents hardly ever die.

    Not entirely snark, but as convincing as some of the Witherspoon arguments.

    Real plastic here; none of that new synthetic stuff made from chicken feathers. By the morning of 9/12/2001 the people of NYC had won the War on Terror.
