For Gay Marriage/Against Judicial Activism

Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi, whom I interviewed here last year, has (like Tabin and Antle) waded into the gay marriage debate with a succinct little piece that begins like so:

No one can blame gay Americans for celebrating the California Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn a voter-approved ban on gay marriage. At first glance, the case appears to be a key victory for same-sex marriage proponents. But, in truth, any judicial action that strikes down a democratically enacted law is a step in wrong direction – both tactically and ideologically.

There is no way around it. At some point, a majority of American voters, rather than a slight majority of judges, must be convinced that gay marriage deserves legal recognition. Don’t get me wrong. I count myself among the convinced. Committed relationships – socially, emotionally, sexually – between two individuals, whatever the gender component, is favorable to a lack of such relationships.

If Ashton Kutcher can call it marriage, well . . . come on.
