It is one thing, and isn’t another—and that’s not mere subjective opinion. Or so we read in What is Marriage, a new and momentous paper authored by First Things board member Robert P. George, along with former First Things assistant editor Ryan Anderson and Rhodes Scholar Sherif Girgis.
I had been thinking of compiling a list of articles explaining natural law (non-revelational) explaining why same-sex “marriage” isn’t marriage. This article almost does it all. It doesn’t cover every possible argument, but it is comprehensive and thorough both in presenting its own side and handling objections. It’s a true must-read.
