But that’s exactly what happened in the state of Washington the other day.
Angela Vogel, a Seattle resident, decided to wed “Corporate Person” in a ceremony presided over by United Methodist Pastor Rich Lang.
The event was reportedly a protest over the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.
Though her marriage to “Corporate Person” was ruled legally invalid, it’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time someone in Seattle has tried to marry something other than a person. In January of this past year, Babylonia Aivaz married a 107-year-old building in an attempt to stop the spread of gentrification.
As disturbing as all this is, I can’t help but think that none of this would happen if marriage was still understood as a union between one man and one woman.
