Ancient Gay Marriage
When I started to hear christians say "marriage" is between a man and a woman, I chuckled. Who are they to say so? Marriage was not then what it is today. Marriage then was a man going to a father and saying, "I have three cows and two swine that I offer you for your daughter". The daughter didn't even have a say in the matter. It wasn't like dating today or the phony baloney which you saw in "Braveheart". Men traded women as if they were cattle and they did not have the same rights as women today experience.
This article explains about a discovery of two male saints which apparently were gay and married long before the discovery of america. It shows that gay marriage existed long ago and that the republicans/conservative do not hold a right to have the word marriage exclusively used for men and women who get married.
