"We shouldn't just allow gay marriage. We should insist on gay marriage. We should regard it as scandalous that two people could claim to love each other and not want to sanctify their love with marriage and fidelity."
Yeah, well we know how well -that- works for heterosexual marriage, eh? Conservatives have been making the moral case for that for centuries yet here we are, where marriage in general are often considered nothing more than convienence arrangements for a spousal health benefits, to be cast off when we're no longer "in love" (read: he/she squeezes the toothpaste tube from the middle; I'm outta here).
Let's get marriage as it has been for thousands of years right first. -Then- if y'all still want to debate homosexual marriage, you can try with the moral argument.
