Dennis Prager on Same Sex Marriage

Columnist Dennis Prager: "Many societies allowed polygamy, many allowed child marriages, some allowed marriage within families; but none in thousands of years defined marriage as the union of people of the same sex. None of this matters to these judges or to all those who seek to re-define marriage and can't convince a majority of their fellow citizens to agree. For them, it is identical to ruling that laws that banned interracial marriages were unconstitutional. But that argument is utterly flawed. First, the analogy is false because there is no difference between black people and white people, while there are enormous differences between males and females. ... [G]iven that no society in thousands of years has allowed same-sex marriage, it is, by definition, the proponents of same-sex marriage whose position is radical and extreme. ... The Left since Marx has asserted that every one of their radical positions ... is on the right side of history. Virtually none turned out to be."
