The gay marriage 'fad'
• In light of the current adolescent fad for so-called homosexual marriage, one is reminded of the analysis of post-modernist thought by the philosopher Roger Kimball in 'Experiments Against Reality'.
He concluded that the so-called 'Enlightenment' sought to emancipate man by liberating reason and battling against superstition. But that reason, liberated entirely from tradition, has turned out to be rancorous and hubristic -- in short, irrational.
While Mr Kimball was primarily concerned with Marxism/atheism, his focus was also on irrational social experimentation, such as homosexual marriage.
