Martin Cothran, blogger for the Disco. Inst., opposes gay marriage, and wonders:

If their relationships are already stable, then why do they need to be stabilized?

Compelling logic. Clearly, marriage is useless.

Of course, evidence suggests that marriage actually does have a stabilizing effect on people. And gay people, it turns out, are people, too.

    Searching, serious question. Is it any of your business?

    Then why does ANYONE need to get married?

    It’s not about “stability” it’s about the legal and civil benefits, and about not being explicitly labeled a second-class citizen.

    If I hadn’t long ago lost my ability to be surprised by anything the DI does, bringing Cothran aboard. Based on my interactions with him, I’m confident Cothran’s greatest talent is his refusal to ever correctly represent an opponent’s position.

    …wait. Maybe he’s a good fit after all.
