Gay Marriage (not union)

Stanley Kurtz has an excellent piece today at NRO on the likelihood of a national battle over gay marriage in the next couple of years. In this context, Kurtz also discusses the Gores' new book and its stance on marriage.

My gut tells me that gay marriages will become a reality within the next several years. I hope I'm wrong, but that just seems to be the direction our country is moving in. On some things, our nation's moral compass is right on, but on others... not so good.

Nonetheless, the reality is that it will be even more important for couples in traditional marriages to act in a manner that holds up the institution of marriage. When the legal protections for marriage collapse, the only thing remaining is the example set by every husband and wife.
