Ross Douthat has an amazingly dumb piece in his New York Times column space today about why all the usual arguments against same-sex marriage are wrong but it shouldn’t be allowed anyway. TBogg has the shorter version. Andrew Sullivan and Glenn Greenwald have the best substantive responses (Andrew’s is more personal and reflective; Glenn’s is the legal analysis of Douthat’s argument). If you want more commentary, you can find it here.
That’s all I have to say on this because, quite frankly, giving any more of my attention to Ross Douthat’s ideology of marriage would be something close to a crime when I could be giving that attention to Robert Morse bringing down the house as he sings about the brotherhood of man.
