I’m in favour of gay marriage, with one caveat – that religious institutions should not be forced into acknowledging it. But if churches positively welcome it, then I don’t see any difficulties with it. Were a law similar to Proposition 8 advocated in the UK, I’d be fiercely against it. That’s because I’m a proper conservative – which might seem a non-sequitor, but as P.J. O’Rourke said:
I'm so conservative that I approve of San Francisco City Hall marriages, adoption by same-sex couples, and New Hampshire's recently ordained Episcopal bishop. Gays want to get married, have children, and go to church. Next they'll be advocating school vouchers, boycotting HBO, and voting Republican.
