On Gay Marriage

I like to think of this debate as a party of adventurers in a Gygaxian dungeon trying to decide if they're going to steal a gem the size of a man's head off the pedestal in the center of the room. The room has been searched for traps, but the older, wiser, players maintain that 'something bad will happen if we do this'. The younger, more rash players say 'like what?' The older players don't know, they just know with moral certainty that this is a bad idea.

Having played a Gygaxian dungeon or two, I too, have a bad feeling about this.
