Brides marrying themselves

This was the news I was treated to several days ago:

A woman has married herself. It was a solo wedding. There she is, standing in front of the congregation, all by her lonesome:


Never mind the larger conflict over whether marriage should be limited

to a union between a man and a woman.

I think when a person marries himself or herself, the real problem

emerges. The real problem has to do with words. When words no longer mean things, that is, when a word can mean just about any thing, the world as we know it largely ceases to exist.

Once words were divine.

Then words were mass produced in printing presses.

Then words evaporated into thin air, or into cyberspace, with a click

of a mouse.

Then people began marrying themselves.


John 1.1 In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and
the Word was God.
