Quote of the day - Joe Sobran [Nero, gay marriage]

PIONEER: The self-contradictory concept of same-sex
marriage has caught on in the decadent West with amazing
rapidity. About the only precedent I can find for it is
inauspicious: hostile chroniclers report that the Roman
emperor Nero "married" a boy (who, however, had been
surgically, er, altered for the purpose) and in later
marriage took the role of bride himself (though without
alteration). Usually dismissed as demented, it appears
that Nero was merely ahead of his time.
