Abstract:

The issue of same-sex marriage has attracted the attention of many political and cultural interests. Same-Sex Marriage: The Moral and Legal Debate presents a balanced sampling of diverse and cogent arguments by academics, politicians, journalists, attorneys, judges, and activists. The perspectives range from the views of lesbian feminists, who decry the institution of marriage as an instrument of oppression, to those of religious and cultural conservatives, who see same-sex marriage as the fatal undermining of traditional family structure and even of Western civilization itself.
