I only have the KJV's New Testament, so I can rattle off the Old Testament quotes of fire and brimstone at you... Did Webster manage to add the definition 2 to the word marriage? I don't remember it being there the last time I quoted Webster on this issue. Main Entry: mar·riage Pronunciation: 'mer-ij, 'ma-rij Function: noun Etymology: Middle English mariage, from Anglo-French, from marier to marry 1 a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage <same-sex marriage> b : the mutual relation of married persons : WEDLOCK c : the institution whereby individuals are joined in a marriage Constrast the two definitions http://face.net/Webster's_1828.html This raises an interesting point. If our interpretation of the constitution is based upon the words that have since changed in their meanings, should we change our interpretation of the constitution or change the constitution? What would happen if words such as freedom, rights, and equality were redefined? Of course there are changes such as defining native americans and blacks as human beings that are beneficial.
