(Breitbart) A law professor at Jesuit-run Fordham University in New York is appealing for an end to the institution of marriage in America, which he describes as "religious, gendered, and bourgeois." Ethan J. Leib published his essay in the Fordham Law Review.
The article, titled "Hail Marriage and Farewell," says Leib was "elated" when the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law of the land on June 26, 2015, a ruling he described as "a victory for rights, for open-mindedness, for love, and for the future." The decision, in fact, made him feel, at least for a moment, as if he were living "in a modern liberal state."
Not liberal enough, however. Leib argues that Obergefell v. Hodges, while an important milestone in "marriage equality," doesn’t go nearly far enough. The next step must be to "disestablish" the antiquated institution of marriage altogether.
