Marriage Redefined -- Literally!

Thanks to Wonkette...
Merriam-Webster has added a second definition to their entry on "marriage." Check it out from their website:
If you can't read that for whatever reason (for some reason, it's really blurry on my screen, but that's happened before) -- it reads: "the state of being married to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage ." See, even in the dictionary we're separate and secondary.

And, of course, the right-wing nut jobs over at World Net Daily are having a shit fit about this, so far as to produce a fun little YouTube clip:

I'm sure the English language has no room for additions, modifications, or updates. It's the same language it's been since the vernacular became standard political communication in the 1400s.
