Why a Good Person Can Vote Against Same-Sex Marriage

Oops my mistake. I guess my eyes must have glazed over by the time I reached the end of it. Yup, I was giving prager way too much credit, as always, he did indeed trot out this absurd point once again. One reason we should deny rights to a group of people is because someone might ask a child if they plan on marrying a man or woman. 2 points:(1) I am VERY much pro-SSM and the thought would not even enter my mind to ask a kid that type of question. (2) if your point was to push the "gay agenda", marriage isn't necessary. You could supposedly subvert this mythical kid by asking "Do you think you'll fall in love and live happily ever after? Will it be with a man or a woman?"

Next week voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington will vote on whether to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples.

Given that there are good people on both sides of this issue, how are we to explain their opposing views?

The primary explanation is this: Proponents and opponents ask two different questions.

Proponents of same-sex marriage ask: Is keeping the definition of marriage as man-woman fair to gays? Opponents of same-sex marriage ask: Is same-sex marriage good for society?

Few on either side honestly address the question of the other side. Opponents of same-sex marriage rarely acknowledge...
