Maggie tells us 'not this, not now' as if we're spoiled teenagers seeking a later curfew

by Jeremy Hooper
"Screen Shot 2012-07-05 At 4.43.56 PmA society that is serious about marriage would gently stand up to gay people and say “not this, not now.” Changes in law are hard to undo, once they are institutionalized. I did not decide to debate gay marriage, gay-marriage advocates did. I responded to the challenge. We are making a decision about how serious we are about trying to strengthen marriage as a social institution dedicated to connecting sex, babies, moms, and dads. If we allow gay marriage, the answer is “not very serious” or perhaps “we don’t care at all any more.”

That’s why I oppose gay marriage.

Well, at least she's "gentle" about telling us that our taxes qualify our couplings for lessened (or zero) legal rights.
