“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
The essential function of a trademark is to exclusively identify the commercial source or origin of products, services, or ideas. A trademark, or copyright, is typically a name, word, idea, phrase, logo, symbol, design, image, or a combination of these elements. The owner of a trademark may pursue legal action against trademark infringement.
In 2006 I was awarded a U.S. patent for one of my ideas and inventions. It is trademarked, copyrighted, and registered. I own it. And trust me, it was not inexpensive or easy to obtain.
Today’s redefinition of marriage is the greatest trademark infringement of all time! There are many reasons why “same-sex marriage” is a bad idea. However, regardless of what anyone thinks, same-sex marriage should be legally impossible. Why? Because God owns the trademark.
Marriage has had only one definition since God invented it shortly after he created the first humans on the planet. Further proof that marriage is branded with only one definition is that it has been adopted by virtually every culture in the world.
Here’s the way it plays out. God, the creator of the universe, invents the ultimate life partner (soulmate) for the first man he made, by creating a woman who is a perfect fit in every way. In so doing, He invents marriage. It was His big idea, His product, His service, His solution. He owns the patent. It’s His trademark. In fact, I would argue that there has never been anything more obviously patented, trademarked and registered, and for a longer period of time than marriage.
Any individual, or governing authority, including the Supreme Court that would have the audacity to redefine or appropriate a different meaning to the true definition of marriage, as God (the patent owner) defined it, would be obviously guilty of patent infringement. And, under any similar circumstance would immediately be ordered to cease and desist.
