The Corner

Frum, Ctd.

Now that I think about it, I believe Rauch has put forward the mirror image of Frum’s argument: that conservatives should stop resisting gay marriage because the demand for it will continue and the result will be marriage lite. I think Rauch’s argument is vulnerable to a stronger version of the response I made to Frum’s. The fact that both of them make the argument should tell them something.
