The Joy of Gay Marriage

Thanks to NRO's The Corner, this catch from the Boston Herald:

Yarbrough, a part-time bartender who plans to wear leather pants, tuxedo shirt, and leather vest during the half-hour ceremony, has gotten hitched to Rogahn, a retired school superintendent, first in a civil commitment in Minnesota, then in Canada, and now in Massachusetts, the first U.S. state to recognize gay marriage.

But he says the concept of forever is``overrated'' and that he, as a bisexual, and Rogahn, who is gay, have chosen to enjoy an open marriage. ``I think it's possible to love more than one person and have more than one partner, not in the polygamist sense,'' he said.``In our case, it is, we have, an open marriage.''

For years Andrew Sullivan has argued that letting gays marry won't change the nature of the institution itself.

Now that he's gotten his way, expect him to become more honest, and begin arguing that he thinks it's healthy that gays will change the institution of marriage; that all of us prudish breeders just have to loosen up a bit and get on the polyamory kick.

Because really, isn't the concept of faithful monogamy a bit outdated? A We're sexual beings, first, foremost, and finally, after all. Isn't the monogamy straightjacket a bit antiquainted?

When you think about it, isn't monogamy a bit... medieval? Honestly, it's something that The Taliban could have come up with. It certainly is no overstatement to say that if we allow marriage to remain as it has been understood for millenia, the terrorist Islamist fundamentalists will have won.

Our Constitution: guaranteeing us life, liberty, and the right to swing, baby.

[Note that all of that is intended sarcastically. We don't agree with that. We're putting those words into the mouth of Andy "Swinger" Sullivan.]
