Civics lesson

Jeff Miller reminds us of the three branches of government: judiciary, judiciary. and judiciary. And he also explains the difference between a judge and a dictator.

He's writing, of course, in response to the Massachusetts Supreme Court's "clarification" that basically, only marriage will suffice for granting gays full legal rights.

And as Kevin Miller notes, "if you can have 'gay marriage,' you can have polygamy. There's just no good argument that admits the one but excludes the other." Exactly. As I've noted before, I've tried to get my progressive Christian blogpals to articulate a reason (as opposed to an assertion) why sexual relationships require exclusivity, to no avail. I'm sure some folks would reject Kevin's statement, but what reason would they advance to do so?
