As if the debate on gay marriage was not provocative enough! This article by Patrick Dineen I commend because it will make both the left and the right squirm. It echoes the point I have been making, namely, that we lost the fight for traditional marriage fifty years ago with the introduction of no-fault divorce laws, but Dineen goes further and points to the ways the ambient culture can be conservative in ways that accelerate the decline of traditional marriage. Interesting stuff.
