The Supreme Court's definition of marriage found in Murphy v. Ramsey, 1885.

For certainly no legislation can be supposed more wholesome and necessary in the founding of a free, self-governing commonwealth, fit to take rank as one of the coordinate states of the Union, than that which seeks to establish it on the basis of the idea of the family, as consisting in and springing from the union for life of one man and one woman in the holy estate of matrimony; the sure foundation of all that is stable and noble in our civilization; the best guarantee of that reverent morality which is the source of all beneficent progress in social and political improvement.
---Tim Allen

He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. Proverbs 28:13

Tim the Left's plan is to redefine marriage, and end traditional marriage to weaken the US. As soon as they can force gay marriage on the US they have already started the groundwork to push "religious freedom" exemplified by polygamy for Islam and Mormonism and plural marriage, and many suspect well push incest marriage and marrying children!

Thanks, Tim! Our judges had more wisdom and horse-sense in those days.
