"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Who Changed Webster's Definition?

In 1828, Webster defined Marriage as “The act of uniting a man and woman for life; Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity, and for securing the maintenance and education of children.” However, by 1913 Webster defined Marriage this way, “The act of marrying, or the state of being married; legal union of a man and a woman for life, as husband and wife; wedlock; matrimony.” [a legal term, no longer defined as instituted by God] The current edition of the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Marriage is now defined as “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, the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage.” [only a legal term that applies to everyone and everything] Who changed the definition? Academia, the Press, and the Judiciary. The Liberals!
