MH - Gays Against Gay Marriage

Via Political Capital, this intriguing story from the Boston Globe profiling supporters and opponents of gay marriage in Massachusetts. Of particular interest is the quote Jarrett pulls from one Brian Brandt, "a gay male opponent of gay marriage":
"Before I am a gay male, for lack of a better term, I'm an American," he said. And endorsing gay marriage, he believes, leads to a slippery slope and weakens a great institution.

''We do have the right to marry," he said. ''We just have to marry someone of the opposite gender."

It's really refreshing, no matter what their political pursuasion, to find someone who doesn't use their own personal preference as "best evidence" when it comes to interpreting the law.
