Not Your Average “Coming Out” Moment

From the pages of spiked-online.com, a self-professed social progressive in New York City says why he is against gay "marriage." Here's the short version ...

1) The gay-marriage campaign is elitist and believes its opponents are ‘bigots’

2) Same-sex marriage is not a civil right

3) Traditional marriage and the family are worth defending from state intrusion

4) The question of gay marriage has yet to be fully decided

... which links to the long version.

As to the fourth point, proponents of redefining marriage would go a long way if they could tell the rest of us cretins how we're supposed to tell which of them is the "husband" as opposed to the "wife," if only to pave the way for social etiquette. No sense starting a riot at a dinner party, don't you think?

Or don't you?

UPDATE: Mr Bad Catholic explains why this discussion won't go anywhere anyway. Way to bring the party down, skippy!
