The same-sex marriage debate reminded me of the one between intelligent design and evolution. Gays want to feel natural but sometimes don’t because they do not reproduce as required by evolution: Biology recognizes sterility in nature, but only the fertile species survive.

The right to the religious tradition of bonding by marriage gives gays a sense of belonging to nature and the community. Their self-esteem is not supported by evolution, so they might look to intelligent design because it can alter nature, where evolution cannot.

Same-sex marriage is compassionate human nature, which is what intelligent design really is.
