The right is perturbed because men are getting married on Los Lunnis. Their objections are historical rather than theological–no one’s suggesting we respect Genesis 24:3 and 38:6 and allow fathers to select girlies for their sons–and their problem is that the world has moved on.

Since marriage now seems to be socially defined as a contractually committed partnership, this seems to me a perfectly reasonable proposition, so long as an animal psychologist can be found to establish that Puss really wants the inheritance. In time, I don’t see why this principle should not be extended to permanently inanimate objects. I can’t see the bicycle saying no, and the hell with Daisy.
