Quote of the Day

Exactly the mind set we need more of:

"One of the realities of our world is that there are gay couples living in what are in-effect common-law marriages: sharing a household, rearing children, supporting each other financially and emotionally, etc. The question put before our society, like others, is whether the law will recognize that reality or not. The answer Ross gives amounts to “no, we must not, because while those relationships look like marriages to us, that’s only because we’ve forgotten – or, perhaps, never yet discovered – what marriage truly is.”

I’m taking a hard line against arguments like that. I have come to be very much against the practice of living inside an idea, rather than living inside of life"
