"The Savvy Pundit" gives up on nature.

Gay marriage will be the law of the land in the U.S. inevitably and soon.

Inevitable.  That was Hillary Clinton in 2008, IIRC.

Only a fool relies on a political party or a secular, civil government to validate her morality.   Morality is a transcendent thing that is not subject to definition by the shifting sands of popular opinion within a democracy.

Let's quibble a bit.  It is not "my (or your) morality."  That must be obvious to the author, who immediately contradicts himself, declaring that morality 'is transcendent.'  The second sentence is correct; the first is very poorly phrased.

But this is not principally a "moral" argument.  In this case, we are dealing with nature, as was the case in Roe.  All those religions which decry homosexual activity as 'immoral' do so by following the law of nature.  So, for example, it remains both un-natural and immoral to have sexual congress with sheep.

As was the case with Roe, it is clear that US jurisprudence ignores natural law.  It is both un-natural and immoral to have sex with inanimate objects, but no judge in this land will even convict Susie Q for using her vibrator....right?  And killing one's own pre-born baby is no longer illegal either.

Yes, believers--which in this case include Muslims, orthodox Jews, and Hindus--should have more than the civil law as foundation for their teaching.  It is indeed foolish to trust in princes. 

On the other hand, it is also foolish to use 'inevitability' as an excuse to assume the martyr position.  Winston Churchill did not, nor did Washington at Valley Forge.  And if "Savvy" wants to argue that those men were engaged in a different sort of battle, we can say "How so?"  For this is a matter--as was Roe--of material importance to the health of the State.  Maybe not its survival, as only 5% of the population is involved. 

But the family remains THE building-block of civilization.  Erasing, or smudging, the definition of 'family' will have consequences, just as does the erasure of 400 million lives since Roe.

So, Savvy, my position on your proposed surrender?
