Put another way, would there be as much of a controversy over the availability of the “marriage” title if it had no religious and moral connotations?

At oral argument, California’s Solicitor General noted that the state provides that “gay and lesbian couples do have legal rights and benefits of marriage, full equality and adoption, full access to assistive reproduction,” leading the chief justice to remark that “it’s just about the label in this case.”

Excellent post. Connects dots between yesterday's liberal incursion into the church and today's sexual revolution leading to SSM.

Not so much the advent of the Pill, but instead its general acceptance in society, both secular and Christian seems to have almost killed off the last vestiges of opposition to contraception.
