05/27/09 (source: ADF Alliance Alert)

Pepperdine University law professors Douglas Kmiec and Shelley Ross Saxer have recently proposed replacing the term "marriage" with "civil license," or some other neutral term, and applying the official designation to both same-sex and opposite-sex couples who are married, or who would have sought marriage. (See their proposal here and here. ) Kmiec discusses the proposal; Princeton law professor Robert George explains why he thinks it is a bad idea.
