Dennis Prager on “Redefining Marriage”

The usual clear thinking from Dennis Prager on NRO’s home page today. Some excerpts:

Proponents of same-sex marriage regularly label opponents “radical” and “extremist.” However, given that no society in thousands of years has allowed same-sex marriage, it is, by definition, the proponents of same-sex marriage whose position is radical and extreme. You cannot redefine marriage in a more radical way than allowing members of the same sex to marry. You can argue that this is the moral thing to do. But you cannot argue that it is it not radical.

All these judges have a hubris that is simply breathtaking.… That it is conceit rather than legal reasoning is easily shown when one peruses the opinions of these judges….
