Reforms and consequences

Progressives arguing for the institution of same-sex marriage claimed that their proposed reforms could not possibly tread on the religious freedom of those who wanted no part in the institution. The passage of laws recognizing* the institution was contingent on this understanding.

Consequently, it has been shown that the institution of same-sex marriage does tread on the religious freedom of those who chose not to observe the institution.

Therefore, the institution of same-sex marriage was created under false pretenses. It should be dissolved and reevaluated under our current better understanding of the institution’s consequences.

*I refuse to say permitting or legalizing in regard to same-sex marriage. The issue was never one of permission but one of institutionalization.
