Words have meaning. This simple phrase is self-evident, except to the liberals who have become masters of deconstruction and confusion.

Take the word "marriage." As defined in the dictionary: "The legal union of a man and a woman as husband and wife."

There has been no dispute over this ever since Adam took Eve as his mate. Marriage as universally understood has been the bedrock of the family and integral to western civilization.

Now, in the blink of an eye, the progressives have muddled the meaning of this venerable institution. The last 5,000 years are suddenly decried as hate-filled and discriminatory.

Liberals have now dragged marriage before the Supreme Court. But even the nine wizards in robes can no more change the definition then they can proclaim that goats are now chickens or that oranges are now just another variety of apple.
