Opening the Flood Gates

Mary Cheney, who is related to someone notable, has written a book. Being a lesbian, her book doesn't exactly toe the party line on Gay Marriage. On the other hand, given her famous relative, there has to be some consternation at the idea of going after her.

But Star Parker is willing to take her and her arguments in favor of Gay Marriage on. One passage I found particularly striking.
Now it is absolutely clear that legalization of gay marriage opens the door to every imaginable possibility. Once the authority for defining marriage moves from biblical tradition to politics, marriage will be defined by whatever might be deemed so by a court or that can be passed into law.
Or, to put it another way, we need government to define marriage, because otherwise government will have the power to define marriage.
