Reno: Marriage, sex, and politics

    R.R. Reno at First Things: “Gay rights and sexual liberation more broadly are relatively cost-free commitments for today’s Democratic Party. . . . No rhetoric is too extreme, because it’s not in the slightest degree politically dangerous. The sorts of people who don’t want gay marriage are already on the other side. The Selma Analogy is an easy applause line in the current Democratic Party coalition. . . . Prosecuting a culture war that powerful business interests either agree with or think irrelevant provides a point of unity and feel-good commitment that helps party leaders avoid divisive issues. That’s why same-sex marriage and all it represents has become so important in domestic politics today, or at least a significant part of the reason why.”
