For years now, gay marriage activists had assured those who are loyal to traditional marriage that their battle would be over as soon as same-sex couples can get married.
Unfortunately, it appears that the Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage was only the beginning.
According to Conservative Tribune, California Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill into law that has removed the words “husband” and “wife” from the state’s marriage laws. Instead, they have been replaced with the word “spouse.” Brown reportedly did this because the words “husband” and “wife” have now been classified as “anti-gay.”
This bill is known as SB1306, and it is set to take effect on January 1.
“I am pleased Gov. Brown has recognized the importance of this bill, which makes it explicitly clear in state law that every loving couple has the right to marry in California,” said state Sen. Mark Leno, who wrote the bill making the terminology change. “This legislation removes outdated and biased language from state codes and recognizes all married spouses equally, regardless of their gender.”
This is of course absolutely ridiculous, since there is nothing hateful about the words “husband” and “wife.” The new law only shows that gay marriage activists will not be satisfied with same-sex marriage. In reality, they won’t be happy until traditional marriage is completely dead.
