    @UTSU Italy and Greece have never recognized any gay marriages or civil partnerships. You could also argue that Germany, Austria, Ireland, Finland, and Australia officially discriminate against gay people by not allowing full marriage.

    "Name a prosperous country where gay behavior was the norm among half or more of the people, and didn't have a destructive result."


    this is exactly why you can not win the argument--one logically flawed argument after another.

    people with same sex attraction are in minority, only about 5% of the population, there will never be a country where "gay behavior was the norm among half or more of the people", because most people are not sexually attracted to people of same gender, no matter in which county.

    BTW, can you name a western developed country that discriminates gay people?

    This isn't news, this is pages of bitter rhetoric wrapped around a one paragraph story of a documentary and party at Sundance. This guy found three academics who disagree with the Supreme Court and frames it as an evenly divided dispute. Then he compares the marriage cases to Roe v. Wade to suggest that the result of marriage will be decades long culture war. Only at the second to last paragraph does he concede that no such backlash occurred in Loving v. Virginia.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. Shame on the D-News for labeling this editorial a news story.

    1. The U.S. supreme court disagrees with Ed Meese as to the constitutionality of proposition 8.
    2. I can't wait to see the documentary about prop 8 on HBO. HBO has a long history of broadcasting excellently produced, fair and unbiased documentaries. It should be quite an eye opener.

    You should write some stories that offer more support to gay marriage. If this is a story and not an editorial, it's really one sided.

    This article belongs in the editorial page. It is a polemic, not a news report.A few questions: since when are the civil rights of human beings subject to "democratic debate"? Since when is a civil right derived from "consensus"? Isn't it a conservative mantra that our rights are a gift of God? If the majority of Americans wanted gun control, would you agree that we should therefore eliminate the "right to bear arms"?
