Andrew Norton has a terrific post on the tension between liberals and conservatives over the issue of gay marriage. Following up on a piece in the Oz by Tim Wilson, Andrew carefully unpicks the critique by gay marriage opponent John Heard.
From an economic standpoint, I can think of no good reason to ban gay marriage. If the institution of marriage can withstand Britney Spears, it’s not going to be brought down if we allowÂ my good friends Adam and Stephen toÂ tie the knot after living together for 14 years.
