Bottum's Up on Same Sex Marriage

Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. is the
President of the Ruth Institute
The blogosphere has been all abuzz with reactions to Catholic intellectual Joseph Bottum's recent meandering piece on same sex marriage. The Sexual Revolutionaries consider Bottum's support of redefining marriage a coup, while supporters of natural marriage are naturally disappointed. But I think this article provides important clues to the way the Sexual Revolution has proceeded and succeeded. And far from persuading me to change my views, Mr. Bottum has convinced me more than ever that natural marriage is the right side of history.

They have wanted the entire Sexual Revolution. The Sexual Revolution has been good for the rich. For the poor, not so much. But never mind. (If there are any rich people who would like to support the Sexual Counter-Revolution, donations to the Ruth Institute will be gratefully accepted.)
