Steinfels on Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Liberty

In this week's NY Times "Beliefs" column, Peter Steinfels writes about the efforts (involving three MOJers, Perry, Garnett, and Berg) to add meaningful religious-liberty protections to statutes recognizing same-sex marriage.  He isn't enthralled with the literary style of our proposed model exemption (in the letter you can link to here): "The language these scholars have crafted to balance [the] competing concerns is rather less eloquent than 'in sickness and in health' and 'till death do us part.'”  (What do you want; we're law professors.)  But he does, I think, implicitly endorse the importance of the project.
