Oh! Waite...what!?? Now you are pasting the writings of someone who appears to be open to various definitions of marriage. Do you even realize how this contradicts the other crap that you posted? Do you think must about what you post? Do you think at all?George and Lee in 2014 wrote Conjugal Union: What Marriage Is and Why It Matters:
Here they describe the theme of their arguments:
In this book, we examine these issues from the standpoint of reason unaided by faith; that is, we do not presuppose here any revealed source of truth – we do not presuppose the truth of any sacred writings or the teachings of any authoritative religious body. The arguments we propose are ones that can be accepted by anyone, without regard to religious conviction and commitment. Thus, we will set out philosophical arguments (sometimes called “natural law” arguments) to defend traditional morality on the questions of what marriage is; whether it should be exclusive, permanent, between a man and a woman, and restricted to two persons, not three or more; whether sexual acts outside marriage are morally right; and whether marriage should be defined by the political community as an exclusive union of husband and wife.
