Parsing conservative arguments for and against gay marriage

Latest post at LadyBlog:

[Conor’s conservative case for gay marriage] spawned quite the confabulating dialogue (see Joe here, Conor again here, and Joe again here), largely centered around not only whether it was right or wrong for gay parents to have and/or raise children but whether it was selfish for them to do so … If we’re going to argue that it’s selfish for gay parents to have kids because the situation might be less than optimal from the outset, wouldn’t we also have to condemn, and even seek to prevent, anyone in … other ‘less-than-optimal’ situations from childbearing and rearing? And, just to make sure, maybe bar them from marriage itself, too?

Ahem.
