Rewriting the History of Marriage

I know the blog is a little top-heavy with the gay of late, but this post couldn't be ignored. For so long--as long as the marriage equality fight has been fought--we've heard that marriage has existed, unchanged, for thousands upon thousands of years. I don't particularly understand why they find this to be a persuasive argument, really. "We've always done it that way" isn't a good enough reason to squash the civil rights of an entire group of taxpaying citizens. And the "thousands" varies from two to five to six, depending upon the arguer.

Lawrence O'Donnell has cracked the code. And he lists the ways that marriage has indeed changed over many more thousands of years. And he uses the Bible as a source!
