Re Gay Marriage

I agree with Lew’s and Dan‘s responses to my post. Dan’s comment is correct: “There is no good reason that I can see for libertarians to support gay marriage.” By the same token, there is no good reason to make opposition to it the highest priority. And there is no reason not to acknowlege that there is nothing unlibertarian, in principle, with the contractual regimes established by two or more individuals being recognized legally; nor with recognizing that it should be up to private civil society, not the state, to decide how to conventionally label a self-described “homosexual marriage” relationship.
