LIFE: This is a great piece by conservative writer Andrew Sullivan about the ruling on gay marriages in Massachusetts. It's probably the best articulation of the reasons why saying gay people can't get married is ridiculous and offensive that I've ever read. It's long but this is one of the issues that's very simple but at the same time very misunderstood for a myriad of reasons. Just the other day I read this series of blog entries by Eve Tushnet outlining why she is against gay marriage that even if I didn't have a job I wouldn't have time to say exactly how wrongheaded it is but Mr. Sullivan's piece pretty much shoots down all of her arguments.
