We've always defended traditional marriage from Eastasia. (2)

As I have noted before, since the November election, users of the argumentum ad populum against marriage equality have quietly memory-holed that argument. Nonetheless, I did not anticipate the sheer brazenness of Cardinal George, Catholic Archbishop of Chicago, who said in a pastoral letter (emphasis added),
If we ignore in law the natural complementary of man and woman in creation, then the natural family is undermined. Our individual lives become artificial constructs protected by civil “rights” that destroy natural rights. Human dignity and human rights are then reduced to the whims of political majorities.
Yes, because we all know that reducing human rights to the whims of political majorities would be very bad.  We must follow the eternal verities, whatever they are this week.
