The kids heard about the marriage amendment from father's homily at mass on Sunday and that it was all about defending marriage. They've been counting lawn signs of those who stand for marriage rights and knew their parents went to cast their votes for the protection of family life this past Tuesday. Nothing more came up, it was all so simple. Then today, on the way home from piano Zachary asked me if the amendment passed. "It did." I told him. "Good," Jacob said, "Now you can't marry your goldfish." What? "That's what Dad told us. The amendment says marriage is between one man and one woman. You can't marry your goldfish." "Why do they have to pass laws like that anyway?" Zachary asked, "God already made that law." Yes son, He did.
