Many people steal. Prison is full of thieves. We shouldn’t, as a society, have laws against theft!
Witnesses lie on the stand every day. We shouldn’t require honesty. Sure if you want to take an oath of honesty you should follow it, but most people lie so why try to hold people to a standard?
Moral Anarchy is the solution obviously, Dan Savage! This way no one can ever really be wrong or doing evil. Excellent.. the world becomes a better place now that we have eliminated the rules that create problems.
Until each person is perfect there should be no law
Teens and their incompletely formed judgment similarly rationalize: you do not perfectly execute the ideals you espouse therefore they are inherently flawed [and should not apply to me]. Dan Savage asserts similarly revealing less than mature judgment and less than astute mastery of concepts (like love). Colbert hyperbole provided far too solid footing to faggotry Tuesday night. Wrong-tolerance, as tolerance of evil, is not-surprisingly wrong.
Monogamy is too difficult for people who do not want to control themselves. Fidelity is too much a burden, like love, for any one person. Being faithful in the moment is itself sufficient. As we know the past is not important. Now matters and nothing else.
Savage love is no kind of love: it sets the bar too high, and setting the bar at all is an irrational constraint. Simply because marriage by definition can only be between one man and one woman is no reason it cannot also be between one man and another man. These defined concepts impair using them in ways other than their definition! It’s unfair and unreasonable.
