Extortion or Equality?

Consider the current fight over California's Proposition 8 ("yes" to eliminate same sex marriage, "no" to support same sex marriage), which seems to include an attempt to blackmail businesses that have donated funds to a California gay rights group:
Leaders of the campaign to outlaw same-sex marriage in California are warning businesses that have given money to the state's largest gay rights group they will be publicly identified as opponents of traditional unions unless they contribute to the gay marriage ban, too. (AP)
Pretty ugly, no?

Now read Andrew Sullivan's short essay, "Why Marriage Matters."

Pretty appealing, yes?
