McElroy and Peron on Gay Marriage

In Marriage’s shifting status…and gay marriage today, Wendy McElroy posts an original essay on gay marriage by Jim Peron which “We may wish to return marriage to its original, private status, but until that happens, basic principles of justice require that gay couples have equal access to the flawed state system.” Wendy’s view is:

I am among those who argue for privatization rather than the inclusion of more people within the current statist framework of marriage but I see the logic and good intentions of those who wish to have gay marriage legally recognized. This is an honest disagreement between people who wish to protect human rights and dignity… In the process of exploring this disagreement, Jim raises excellent points in a fascinating essay.

My own view is here: The Libertarian Case for Gay Marriage.
