Made in mockery of marriage

July 09th, 2015 by Vader

“As Sauron made the orcs in mockery of the elves.”

A good insight, even if the Tolkien reference is badly botched.

It is a blotched reference, but it is a wisely blotched one.

It would be more accurate to say Melkor did it (and did it by corrupting the elves), but then most people would not understand because few people have read the Silmarillion. Most have only seen the LotR movies. For maximum impact, speaking in ways people will understand is wisest.

Interesting how the progressives insist that gays must have the right to marry, after decades of insisting that a marriage certificate is just a piece of paper.
