This just in from Cheryl Morgan:

In the Mormon Times, Orson Scott Card publishes a strident call for revolution against governments that allow LGBT people to get married:

How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.

Honestly, I wish government would get the hell out of the marriage business entirely.

Barring that, the next best thing is equal access to any and all.

Marriage is a social contract and a sacrament. The government is involved in the social contract side. It must be.

A recent article suggests that Thomas Disch's recent suicide may have been, in part, spurred by his landlord's attempt to evict him from the apartment he and his partner of 35 years shared until his partner's death.

Disch's name was not on the lease. Last fall the landlord won the legal battle denying Disch's claim on the lease.

Had they been married, he would have had much better legal grounds to fight the eviction, and the case would have likely never gone to court.
