    The redefinition of marriage by the radical alphabet coalition was probably the most successful political campaign in the last 20 years beating out the election of Obama in 2008 and Donald Trump in 2016.

    Fortunately the whole premise of the movement is doomed to fail. As this article alludes to, Marriage has been understood to be the union of a man and a woman and was rooted in ideas of Christianity primarily. This movement challenged that definition quite successfully on the premise that Marriage was the same as any other human relationship.
