Inaccuracy[edit]

The section titled 2008 mentions H. J. Res. 89. which has nothing to do with the Federal Marriage Amendment (see http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/107/hjres89). bbell2000 (talk)

According to govtrack, I can only find four articles with that title: 2 bills each for the house and the senate and all of them are much older than 2008.

RfC[edit]

Light bulb iconB

a RFC arguing that the term "traditional marriage", as used in discussions of marriage in western, predominantly/historically christian, countries -- and, specifically, the United States -- is not a neutral term and should not be used without explanation/contextualization, has been logged on the Traditional marriage Talk page.

the term "traditional marriage" is not a neutral term when it is used by advocates of a certain position in regards to the Federal Marriage Amendment, it refers to the evangelical christian concept of "traditional marriage", which is between one man and one woman -- usually permenantly, until death. globally, however, there are myriad forms of "traditonal marriage"... therefore, it is imperative that wikipedia -- as a global, neutral source -- specify precisely what is meant when the phrase "traditional marriage" is used to advance a very narrow point-of-view, which implies that orthodox christian marriage is the "default", "normal" and "immutable" familial arrangement for all...

the meaning and connotations of the phrase "traditional marriage" when used in U.S.-specific controversies, such as the Federal Marriage Amendment are only self-evident to those who live in cultures where the term "traditional" equals a very specific understanding of "christianity"... if this article -- and any other article that refer to "traditional marriage" where what is meant is a "traditional christian definition of marriage" -- is to be truly neutral and universally understood, it is imperative that the term "traditional marriage" either be explained/contextualized, or replaced by an alternate term, such as:

  • traditional Christian definition of marriage
  • orthodox Christian definition of marriage

note that the term "orthodox Christian definition of marriage", might be an acceptable neutral alternative, as there are an ever-increasing number of christian denominations who have expanded their understanding of marriage...

the wikipedia entry for "traditional marriage" provides a rock-solid basis for a wiki-wide consideration of a nomenclature change/clarification when the term "treaditional marriage" is used in a U.S.-specific context... oedipus (talk) 23:04, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
