Is There a Plausible Defense for Gay Civil Marriage?
Robert P. George, Ryan T. Anderson and Sherif Girgis continue to answer objections to their substantial piece, “What Is Marriage?” published in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy.
George, Anderson, and Girgis strongly believe that there is no plausible defense for gay civil marriage and that these prominent critics have not landed any blows, hence their rapid-response to all of these prominent critiques.
Here are the reviews and responses thus far, in chronological order. They think the latest exchange may be the most important:
- “The Argument Against Gay Marriage: And Why It Doesn’t Fail” (first response to Professor Yoshino)
- “Marriage: Merely a Social Construct?” (Response to Northwestern Law Professor Andy Koppelman)
- “Marriage: Real Bodily Union” (Response to Family Scholars blogger Barry Deutsch)
- “Marriage: No Avoiding the Central Question” (Response to second Yoshino piece)
