I have a question for you dear members of the creative minority.
As you may know, at yesterday’s confirmation hearing Sotomayor quickly volunteered that abortion rights are settled law but refused to comment about gay marriage. How much more settled can the definition of marriage get? It hadn’t changed for the history of civilization, but that is not good enough. A very controversial 5-4 decision in 1973 – settled. A 5,000 year old definition of an institution – not settled. Gotcha. Very unsettling.
It should come as no surprise that I believe that the absurd notion of gay marriage undermines the institution of marriage and ultimately the building blocks of society (as is its aim). Anyway, besides abortion – which laws or judicial mandates in the last 50 years or so have been the most destructive to society as a whole?
I struggle to think of anything more destructive than no fault divorce. What do you think?
