← Marriage - two viewpoints

peter mayhew's Avatar Jump to comment 3 by peter mayhew

I didn't understand this sentence from the first article: "In effect, if marriage is now understood as a lifelong sexual contract between any two adult human persons with no specification of gender, then the allowance of gay marriage renders all marriages "gay marriages."". Non sequitur? Surely you could just as easily argue that it renders all gay marriages heterosexual, which is clearly proposterous.
