Same-sex 'marriage'? Squaring the circle

Our friend, Zach Mabee, writes: "This is a pretty nice summary - by Alan Keyes, in a debate with then-Senator Obama - of the key claim regarding same-sex "marriage" that I've attempted to defend a couple times of late."

Abraham Lincoln dealt with this by raising the question: "If you call a tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?" The irony now is that people no longer understand the answer which was then obvious to any listner: No matter what you may call a tail, it still remains a tail.

Every time I hear Alan Keyes speak, I have to think "how can it be that this man cannot get elected to any substantial office on the face of the earth?"

We can makes excuses like, "he's too much of a knowitall," or "he's a one-issue ideologue," but what it really comes down to, I think, is that we know that he's right, and we don't like what his being right says about us, so we are simply going to ignore it."

At this point I could make some snarky comment about that being the way Neo-Caths deal with trad arguments, but that would be just be wrong.
