Burke & Gay Marriage

From a law prof:

I’m a Burkean advocate of gay marriage. But I have to admit that your

position supporting civil unions and (provisionally?) opposing gay

marriage may be closer to what Burke himself, put in our time and place

with our knowledge of the world, might have been able to support.

Eventually I’m going to get around to writing an extended article on

Burkean thought and gay marriage and yours are among the views I’m going

to have to grapple with.
