In this piece, the paper’s editors lament the fact that the highest courts of New York and Georgia handed down decisions against same-sex marriage. The editors argue that the courts “moved in the opposite direction of history and justice on same-sex marriage.”
The editors were especially outraged at the decision of the New York court, coming in this case from a generally liberal state.
The editors see same-sex marriage as inevitable, and marriage as a social convention and legal construct that can be made into whatever some might demand. But whenever the people have had a chance to vote on this question, it isn’t even close.
A great majority of the American people know what marriage is. America’s media elite, on the other hand, are hopelessly out of touch.
