Re: Marriage

Heck, I'll bite.

Chris, reading through your post, I think you've spent more time reading Meghan McCain than any actual Defense of Marriage proponent. It's late, and I'm tired, so instead of writing a long rebuttal I'll leave the moral issues aside and just speak to your political point.

Since 1998, thirty states have passed constitutional amendments protecting the definition of marriage in one way or another. All passed - none has ever failed. Of those thirty, only 8 passed with less than 60% of the vote.

How is it that "we strengthen our long term strategic position," as you put it, by siding with a clear political minority?
