    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. It’s 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.

    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...
