Princeton v. Yale; Robby George vs. Kenji Yoshino


Yale prof. Kenji Yoshino tries to rebut Princeton Prof. Robby George's new essay (along with Sherif Girgis and Ryan Anderson) "What is Marriage?" in Slate today. [Correction: Prof. Yoshino recently left Yale Law to join NYU's law school]

Over at NRO's Bench Memos blog Matthew Franck evaluates the match and issues a ruling: Princeton by a mile.

"A Swing and Miss in the Marriage Debate"  is the headline of Franck's post which concludes:

"Bottom line: Yoshino provides nothing–nothing at all–by way of an argument for including gay couples in the institution of marriage.  For he provides no alternative answer to the question Girgis, George, and Anderson propound: What Is Marriage?  Is this the best pro-gay-marriage folks can do?"
