Of Course Libertarians Oppose Proposition 8

In response to a "libertarian" writing several articles at supporting Proposition 8, I wrote this article. It also shows how the "libertarians" who say that "getting the government out of marriage" should be the only goal, even if it means sacrificing equal treatment for gays and lesbians, have a blind spot on LGBT issues that they fortunately no longer have on civil rights for other minorities.

Despite being opposed to government schools, most libertarians would be horrified to see such a pro-segregation argument coming from the Reason Foundation. Yet they are less surprised when a nearly identical argument is made regarding gays and lesbians.
