Law professor Geoffrey Stone: Same-Sex Marriage and the Meaning of Words

11/05/09 Huffington Post, by law professor Geoffrey Stone:
In reading through the comments on my recent post about the electoral result in Maine (The Lessons of Maine), I could not help but notice that many defenders of the ban on same-sex marriage argue that marriage has always been defined as a relationship between a man and a woman, that there's no reason to change that traditional definition, and that gays and lesbians should be satisfied with having all the rights married people have, without insisting on re-writing the dictionary.
