Explaining Traditional Marriage

"America's Best Christian" Betty Bowers provides a funny look at Traditional Marriage as observed in the Bible.

While I'm sure some Christians will look at this video as yet further proof as to how Everybody Is Mean To Them, I don't think they should overlook the overarching message of the video. Namely, that what marriage has really "traditionally" meant differs from what they tend to say that it has meant. The utopian version they present (one man, one woman, for life) comes in stark contrast to historical reality. And not only that, we continue to see that, really, this called Traditional Marriage always has been and always will be (if some people have their way) an institution entirely about men and their needs and wants.
