The Soviet Union seemed permanent and invincible, until it didn't. When it fell, far more suddenly than anyone thought it would or could, the festering rot of decades was exposed to the world. We're seeing this happen, in real time, with the Republican Party.
The Catholic Church constructs barriers while speaking in doublespeak saying "we love you," "we welcome you," "we offer you 'Christian love,'" and "we are here to help you change your unwanted attractions and gender identities and expressions."
The city, quite literally, is stopped for days for this event. Despite media reports of excitement, many Philadelphians are less-than-thrilled about this Pope-pocalypse and the disruption it is causing the city and its citizens.
One of the primary Christian arguments against same sex marriage is the Genesis account of human creation. You've heard it a million times, and can probably even imagine the voice of jailed Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis sputtering it in a righteous spray of spittle:
Here are just a few of the ways that marriage has been radically redefined throughout history.
There's a growing bipartisan push in some states to stop issuing marriage licenses altogether in a surprisingly good, "smaller government" way.

Dirk and I have forged the sort of traditional marriage that our ancestors embraced: a blessed, private contract of two souls, validated by our family and accepted by our community. We don't need a certificate or license from any church or government to tell us that.
