Tyler Wittman's column on Thursday held many contradictions and historical inaccuracies, many of which I found completely laughable.
First off, if Mr. Wittman is arguing that liberals are NOT religious, then why is he labeling them with a religious term? The "Luciferian left" is a bit contradictory for such an atheistic group, is it not?
Second, Mr. Wittman's statement that marriage originated in the church is completely unfounded. I think Mr. Wittman needs a history lesson. Is Mr.Wittman suggesting that Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus and Native Americans did not practice marriage?
All of those religions have been around for a lot longer than Christianity. In fact, even Pagans had marriage before they ever met Christian missionaries. What an amazing discovery!! Greeks and Romans got married, too!!
Mr. Wittman also referenced the Bible. I wonder if he just completely skipped over the First Testament, which is about the many years before Christ, and therefore the Christian church. I believe marriage is covered in that testament in many forms, including the usage of terms such as husband and wife.
So, I think that it is safe to say that marriage DID NOT "originate" in the church.
I suggest Mr. Wittman research his topics more thoroughly before he writes another absurd and laughable article.
