At the time, I had some doubts. However, the likelihood seems much greater in light of the recent court rulings. Journalist Austin Ruse seems to agree, writing on Aug. 28, 2014: “Professor Robert George of Princeton, along with Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation, have argued that once the state eliminates the two gender rule for marriage, based upon the procreative nature of suc...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
