For starters, virtually every political community has regulated male-female sexual relationships

Greece, Rome, the Apache, every society has to know what marriage is, and form laws dealing with it.

Finally a cogent, coherent, conservative argument for traditional marriage. Too bad we can’t get it out there to Hollywood and all the other culture shaping venues.

all citizens have the right to live and love as they choose

Really? From what source does this right proceed?

Does a citizen have the right to live and "love" (ahem) with a sibling? With multiple "spouses"? With 10-year-old boys?

We need a more specific political vocabulary. "Right" is being used to mean too many different things, many of them pernicious. We also need to stop using "love" when we mean "copulate" or "sodomize."
