I agree with Matt Barber...

by Jeremy Hooper

...counterfeit "marriage" of any kind is surely a bad idea

But real marriage, free from unnecessary labels or smear quotes, is normal, biologically sound, in line with both history and the future, morally positive (or at least morally neutral), and well within the confines of any definition of sanity.

Matt's problem is that he does, in fact, describe a counterfeit unlike the one that now exists in sixteen states (+ D.C.). If he would stop counting on the fake currency that he and his movement's desperate talking points wish to turn into reality and start instead dealing with the benign reality that is marriage equality, we could perhaps get beyond this childish game of pretend that make-believe "culture warriors" stage within their fairy tale theaters and start talking like adults.

Grow up, Matt.
