But Matt Spalding of Hillsdale College said the prospect of government defining marriage should scare civil libertarians and social conservatives alike.
"The problem we have here with this issue is the question of marriage does cut to the nature of things," said Mr. Spalding, associate vice president and dean of educational programs at the Michigan school. "If you don't recognize the fact that the government needs to protect those that have religious liberty objections to this fundamental question, then you're giving up your liberty because now government has the right to step in and define those things for you, and I guarantee you — that's what they're going to do."
