The Conservative Case in Favor of Gay Marriage

The same-sex marriage amicus brief before the Supreme Court "argues, as he does, that same-sex marriage promotes family values by allowing children of gay couples to grow up in two-parent homes, and that it advances conservative values of 'limited government and maximizing individual freedom.'"

--New York Times today quoting former Solicitor General Ted Olson of the Bush Administration (the guy who kept Al Gore out of the White House) about the conservative position on gay marriage (story here). Real conservatives see this as an individual freedom, small government issue. Which it is.
