I agree with Colin Craig

Colin Craig on same-sex marriage:

“Government needs to get out of the bedrooms of the country”.
I agree with this absolutely. The state has no business in our bedrooms, or in dictating to us the sorts of relationships we should pursue. If the parties involved are consenting adults, then it is none of the state's business what they do.

And this is exactly why I support same-sex marriage: because it puts all relationships on an equal footing, and gets the government out of people's bedrooms. Contra Craig, it is the privileging of some relationships over others that constitutes "social engineering". If Craig truly opposed that (rather than simply wanting to engineer things his way and make us all conform to his preferred lifestyle), then he'd support equality, not bigotry.
