Unexpected allies against same-sex marriage ban in North Carolina

Jonathan Capehart, Washington Post, 4/11/2012

Elizabeth Marquardt and David Blankenhorn work at the Institute for American Values, whose mission in part is to strengthen marriage... Those against marriage equality usually cling to negative stereotypes of gay men and lesbians to bolster their tired arguments. And they have used those arguments to deny those same couples and their families the recognition needed to share in the American dream. Not Blankenhorn and Marquardt. They acknowledge that families headed by gay men and lesbian couples exist and deserve legal protection. Their line of argument was as unexpected as it was welcome.
