A year ago I wrote the essay “Same sex and mixed race: zeroing in on the debate around gay and interracial marriage.” In it I stated that in a modern society, the state has as much prerogative to ban gay marriage as it does interracial marriage, which is to say none at all. Some of my views have changed since then, though. No, I still have nothing against either same-sex or interracial marriage. On the other hand, I have begun to ask myself whether the government should be in the wedding business in the first place.
