Why bother to ask beauty pageant contestants their views on same-sex marriage if there is only one acceptable answer? And the Miss USA contestant who raised Perez Hilton’s hackles offered only a very mild, apologetic, and almost equivocal defense of traditional marriage. If you want to treat people who believe that marriage is between a man and a woman — what marriage has always meant in our society — the same way we treat opponents of interracial marriage, you have to try to marginalize a large group of religious believers, many of whom would not otherwise particuarly care about this issue.
