Last week, Connecticut became the third state to legalize same-sex marriage. Over at The New Republic, Richard Just lauds the Connecticut Supreme Court's decision, which reveals "the absurd illogic at the heart of civil unions." Opponents of same-sex marriage accidently devalue the very institution they set out to defend—"marriage, they end up arguing, is nothing so special that it can't be replicated by a parallel institution." Just then notes that "the Connecticut ruling didn't really get that much attention over the weekend." Maybe it was crowded out by the campaign and the economy. Or, "maybe that is its own form of progress."
