Exactly right, except for "figure out ways to offer gay couples basic rights associated with marriage." If the problem really is gender obliteration, half a vice is still a vice. The problem with homosexuality is that it is inherently based on anarchy, whether the argument is about marriage or any other aspect. Homosexuality itself was criminal throughout history (until recently) for a reason: the same anarchy that Dennis is talking about cannot be contained by simply restricting marriage to heterosexuality; it is systemic, homosexuality does not deserve any legitimacy on any level. Homosexuals have the same rights as all citizens, but that does mean they have the right to special treatment. or to denigrate the rest of the world.
