Gay Marriage: Why It Is Good for Gays, Good for Straights, and Good for America by Jonathan Rauch

Finished readin' Gay Marriage: Why It Is Good for Gays, Good for Straights, and Good for America by Jonathan Rauch.

This book is a must-read fer gay-marriage supporters. Why not fer scallywags who be against gay marriage, yo ho, ho I'm not sure. I think maybe 'tis because th' book is better suited as not so much preachin' t' th' converted but supplyin' nuance an' moderation t' an overheated debate. It has, a little surprisingly, moderated my somewhat radical views on heterosexual marriage. Rauch comes very close t' straw-lubber arguments on a few occasions, an' he has received some criticism for his treatment of the Hayekian argument. Quibbles. This is an excellent book.

I've made reference t' this book in several weblog entries since readin' it:
