But Gay Men Can Get Married! (To Women)

[Letter writer Jeremy Roberts] writes that ‘homosexuals share exactly the same right to marry as heterosexuals’ because gay men can marry women, just like other men. That is simple sophistry. If, for example, the government only allowed same-sex marriage, Roberts could then clearly explain how that right would not be the ‘same’ for the average man as would be the right to marry women. If a law made it illegal to be a Mormon, I hope Roberts would not claim that Latter-day Saint citizens still had ‘equal rights’ to religion because, hey, they could still be Hindu, just like everyone else.” [Salt Lake Tribune]
