Marriage Equality PSA Points Out Other Religious Marriage Laws

I came across the loveliest video on YouTube after a tip from Will over on The Happy Atheist Forum. It is a public service announcement type skit about equal marriage.

As we all know, the vast majority of objections to marriage equality come from religious folks who take them straight from the Bible. This skit talks about the other Biblical marriage traditions we've let fall by the wayside in the name of humane behavior.




It seems to me that if we can so easily discard those other biblical laws regarding marriage, why not this last one - that marriage must be between a man and a woman? It makes about as much sense as any of the others.

Not only is discarding this Biblical law the humane thing to do, it's the thing any country that separates Church and State should do.

That was awesome!

I really wish this video could be shown to more Christians so they could see the ridiculousness of their "traditions".

Perhaps if we emphasized that if you follow part of a tradition you should follow all of it, then those against equality of marriage would realize it's absolutely illogical and erroneous to be so.

That was a great video, Kylissa.

Love between two people, no matter if it hetero or homo is wonderful thing.
I don't give a rat's ass what they do sexually.

Now, how many of you who support gay marriage really wish your own dad had adopted you with a life partner named Brandon? Do I hear crickets chirping? Why, yes...the silence is deafening.
