"Two recent headlines clashed on the subject of State-sanctioned and regulated marriage: the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s 'N.Y. Parade Cheers the Right to Marry' and the New York Times’ 'Polygamist, Under Scrutiny in Utah, Plans Suit to Challenge Law.' The 'right to marry' being celebrated is the right of gays to place their intimate relationships under State control and so reap the legally mandated benefits offered to married people."
