Rod Dreher, Douthat Says ‘Cut The Crap’
No compromise is possible because of opposing first principles. So why bother to turn Douthat's column into a discussion? Those who support SSM, etc., will not budge on what they think is a fundamental question of "equality." It's a waste of The American Conservative's web "space" and does little to advance a positive program for renewal.
"A live and let live" policy does not seem to be tenable, though it is questionable that those proponents of SSM would be willing to back up their "enlightened" morality themselves, instead relying upon the power of the state. That's where we are.
