The Wisdom of Upholding Tradition | Sherif Girgis, Ryand T. Anderson and Robert P. George at WSJ
Sherif Girgis, Ryand T. Anderson and Robert P. George at the Wall Street Journal (access via Google): For all these reasons, conservatives would be ill-advised to abandon support for conjugal marriage even if it hadn’t won more support than Mitt Romney in every state where marriage was on the ballot. They certainly shouldn’t be duped into surrender by the circular argument that they’ve already lost. The ash-heap of history is filled with “inevitabilities.” Conservatives—triumphant against once-unstoppable social tides like Marxism—should know this best. “History” has no mind. The future isn’t fixed. It’s chosen. The Supreme Court should let the people choose; and we should choose marriage, conjugal marriage.
