Same-Sex Marriage: Pro and Con: A Reader
by Andrew Sullivan (Editor)
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679776370, Paperback)At the end of Virtually Normal, Andrew Sullivan called for the legalization of gay and lesbian marriages as a recognition of an individual's right to enter into a committed relationship with the person he or she loves. Same-Sex Marriage: Pro and Con is, as the title suggests, a collection of arguments for and against such unions. Sullivan provides little commentary, allowing the various authors gathered here to speak for themselves. No matter which side one supports on this issue, this anthology will enable both an intellectual support of one's own beliefs and a better, fuller understanding of the contrary position.

"From Plato to Camille Paglia, a collection of opinions, pro and con, on one of the most explosive issues of our time." "Were homosexual unions sanctioned by societies before our own? What are the bases for the religious proscriptions against them? Does the Constitution implicitly grant homosexuals the right to marry? Will same-sex marriages make gays and lesbians more like straights or somehow undermine the traditional family? How will they affect our notions of parenthood?" "In Same-Sex Marriage: Pro and Con, these questions are explored by clergy and jurists, historians and anthropologists, poets, conservative politicians, queer theorists, and many others. Andrew Sullivan gathers two thousand years of argument on same-sex partnerships into an anthology of historic inclusiveness and evenhandedness. Readers of every sexual and ideological persuasion will be consulting this definitive book for years to come."--BOOK JACKET.
