Unholy Matrimony

When you want to think about what words actually mean and what logic really is, you can't do better than C. S. Lewis. Even when he doesn't convince you to change your position, you've learned a lot from him. Here he helps us set 'gay marriage' in perspective.

This is from Iron Ink.

In A Pilgrim’s Regress, C.S. Lewis wrote about a man who ordered milk and eggs from a waiter in a restaurant. After tasting the milk he commented to the waiter that it was delicious. The waiter replied, “Milk is only the secretion of a cow, just like urine and feces.” After eating the eggs he commented on the tastiness of the eggs. Again the waiter responded that eggs are only a by-product of a chicken. After thinking about the waiter’s comment for a moment the man responded, “You lie. You don’t know the difference between what nature has meant for nourishment, and what it meant for garbage.”

Today, with Sodomite coupling (“marriage”) we have reverse-engineered Lewis' account. The account should now tell the story about a man who ordered Cow Urine and Chicken fesus from a waiter in a restaurant. After tasting the Cow Urine he commented to the waiter that it was delicious. The waiter replied “Cow Urine is only cow’s milk.” After eating the Chicken poop he commented on the tastiness of the poop. Again the waiter responded that Chicken poop is really the same as chicken eggs.

A person at the next table observed all this in incredulity and shouted to both waiter and customer, “You two are insane. You don’t know the difference between what God has meant for garbage and what He meant for nourishment.” At this the waiter and customer along with much of the rest of the customer clientele, who was also dining on Chicken shit and Cow piss, arose to denounce the man who pointed out the insanity of the waiter and customer. They denounced the intruder as being a urine-ist and from suffering from fecalphobia. They insisted that he was a “hater” and demanded to know where his compassion was. They quoted scripture to him about the evil of judging. They insisted that all restaurants, in the name of fairness and equality, be forced to sell Chicken shit and Cow piss to all who wanted to buy it from them as a breakfast entree.

With the normalizing of sodomite “marriage” we are insisting that grotesque garbage is in fact the very same thing as Marriage. We are insisting that we call that which is destructive to human flourishing to be the same as that which is nourishing and refreshing to human thriving. We are in even worst shape then the waiter and customer in Lewis’ original parable. In the orignal parable the customer was at least eating and drinking the proper production of Cow and chicken, even if Lewis’ waiter was trying to draw an equivalency between nourishment and refuse. What we are doing instead is consuming the refuse while insisting that offal garbage is the same as nourishment.

And the really odd thing … the thing that is breathtakingly bizarre is that many in the Church are telling us that we ought to join in the celebration of a grotesque impossibility thus giving our whole hearted approval to the equivalency of someone dining on chicken shit and cow piss all the while insisting that it is really eggs and milk. It is ministers in the Church who want us to call and support a grotesque impossibility as the same thing as “Holy Matrimony.”

Actually, neither C. S. Lewis, nor Lewis Carroll could have ever conceived of this scale of utter madness.

  1. Personally I could not care much less about what gays do, but when they start online lynch mobs to drive small businesses out of business because the business owners would rather not collaborate in their "weddings," I. Get. Pissed. OFF!

    Over on a Catholic blog (don't have the URL handy, sorry) I saw one interesting way to fight back, that AFAICT is perfectly legal and non-actionable. Tell the "gay" couple that you'll donate all the money they spend to some cause they're sure to hate...and that if they insist on you catering their "wedding," all your people will be wearing big badges proclaiming your loyalty to the Church and all its teachings.

    I also wonder what would happen if they tried their tricks on a business that was run by people who had relatives in the Mob. According to the real-life Donnie Brasco, mob guys despise gays, and do not take well to their kin or neighbors being harassed.

    1. Good call Technomad, like I said back on the 4th, Jehovah's witnesses should be using the wedding thing as a recruiting tool.

      I want the raspberry-lemon free-trade...

  2. Setting aside the religious connotations (the way it appears to me, man-and-woman marriage was antecedent to the butinsky "blessings" of any witch-doctors), the civil purpose of marriage has always been the preservation of property - most productive enterprises having been FAMILY operations down through the millennia; the limited liability corporation is a very recent proposition - and the care of incompetent dependents (the very young and the very old).

    As a CIVIL proposition, "gay marriage" seems to make some sense, even though homosexual copulation is non-fecundative. Faggots and dykes (ceteris paribus) aren't necessarily sterile, and there are always some gay men who prove to be weak-willed in the presence of strongly assertive women. Not to mention them turkey basters which do double-duty in lesbian households.

    But on the religious side? God forbid!
