State marriage law exhibits grace, does not oppress homosexual - Nooganomics. Local economy & free markets
print By David Tulis It is important to understand how harmless and gracious Tennessee’s definition of marriage is. It does nothing to criminalize any one’s acts and does not create hostility to people who are single or homosexual. Marriage is defined in the constitution, and by replication in the Tennessee Code Annotated. But it creates no offense against any class. It creates no aught against homosexuals. This point is significant because it is quiet rebuttal to the claim that homosexuals are an oppressed minority. The argument is being made prior to Chattanooga’s vote Thursday on a domestic partner benefits ordinance.
