Man Bites Dog?

 

Reuters reports this morning:

European law does not require countries to grant same-sex couples the right to marry, even if some states have already done so, the continent’s top human rights court has ruled.

The Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) rejected an appeal by two Austrian men who said their country’s refusal to allow same-sex marriage violated the right to marry and prohibition of discrimination in European rights law.

My first reaction was surprise — since when do European bureaucrats pass up an opportunity to tell everone else What Must Be? But then it hit me — when “everyone else” includes a large and growing Muslim polulation, this is probably an issue they want to avoid like the plague. Look for more interesting fissures in the “progressive” monolith in the years ahead….

    Bet you’re right, Steve, and your theory will be confirmed if polygamy gets precisely the opposite treatment in the coming years.
