Is Same-Sex Marriage More Clearly a Bad Idea Than Legalized Abortion?

My recent article outlining a defense of marriage rooted in respect for limited government attracted a salient comment from Ken Zaretzke, which I quote in relevant part below:
Same-sex marriage is much more clearly a bad idea than legalized abortion is a bad idea. I oppose the legalization of abortion for what I believe are very good reasons. Itís just that I think the arguments on the other side are quite strong in their own way. Ultimately, I believe the strongest basis for opposition to abortion is a belief in the wrongness of infanticide (as opposed to metaphysical arguments about the nature of persons). But for various reasons, this just shows how complex the abortion debate is.

No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

I guess that's one way to say "Marriage is for Children, Calls for equal rights as an argument is nothing more than emotional nonsense." in a drawn out, (to borrow a word)specious manner...
