    "Progress" in this context means movement towards something positive.
    Describing universal same-sex marriage as a 'positive' is a matter of opinion.

    That's not the context I was referring to. I meant it simply as moving forward.

    "Forward" denotes "positive", when in fact the more universal acceptance of homosexuality would drive society back towards the Greeks.

    342 or so. That doesn't lead me to conclude 5000 years of tradition.

    And didn't Emperor Elagabalus actually get married to a man?

    Same thing. Matter of opinion.

    I'm referring to the Judaeo-Christian tradition that still lives on, not some Roman one that was taken over by it.

    Forward doesn't necessarily denote positive. It means that things are progressing. If I was to say that a war was progressing to more bloodshed and violence that wouldn't be a positive thing, but the term still works. And as far as the rest of your comment that is a matter of opinion as well.

    Fair enough.

    By the way, your post reminds me of this quote from The Big Lebowski

    Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax... You're goddamn right I'm living in the ****ing past!
    Love that movie.

    "moving forward" denotes something different that "moving on" or "moving toward", et al.

    Stating that it is a matter of opinion to describe the movement towards universal same-sex marriage as 'good' is -not- a matter of opinon.

    I'm not going to argue semantics with you. I know what I meant and if you want to denote a different meaning from what I said there's nothing that I can do to stop you. I explained what I meant and that's all I can do. Take it however you want.
