From MUSE: Marriage Equality and the Dangers of Argument from Definition

This is a thoughtful excerpt from a new book on the Marriage Equality debate and, as djw notes on Lawyers, Guns, & Money, "an excellent demolition of the argument by definition strategy, which is always an exercise in sophistry when dealing with a concept that has a complex social history and is both an empirical and normative capacity. "
