There's been a whole lot of talk about traditional marriage (Christian man-woman marriage) and about how letting two consenting adults of the same gender get hitched is a slippery slope toward humans marrying roller coasters or any number of other things. No wait, that's been happening forever.
In fact, Mexican mayors are marrying crocodiles and turning them into croco-princesses!
After the crocodile, christened Maria Isabel, was married, she danced with her new husband in a party packed with the town's residents. Mayor Rojas said he was delighted to take part in the festivities.Better watch this delightfully romantic sympathetically magical story here. It's a win on many levels.
The tradition has its roots in local traditional religious beliefs.
"Indigenous people have great faith and many beliefs, many myths, especially a lot of mysticism. To be part of that pact between animals, humans, the environment, represented today with the celebration of this marriage, is a privilege that not everyone can have. I feel very lucky," he said.Oh, and this has been happening for years and years - just look it up on the web. It's traditional marriage!
Disclaimer: All jokes aside, I don't think this is a real marriage, per se. It's all symbolic... but I often think that symbolism is the sole basis for US conservative Christians' arguments against same-sex marriage, in the form of definitions.
I also do not condone marriage between humans and animals due to lack of ability of true consent.
