Walker Suggests "Third Way" on Gay Marriage

John Fund notes Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) raised a "third way" of looking at the same-sex marriage debate.

"On Meet the Press this month he remarked on how many young people have asked him why the debate is over whether the definition of marriage should be expanded. They think the question is rather 'why the government is sanctioning it in the first place.' The alternative would be to 'not have the government sanction marriage period, and leave that up to the churches and the synagogues and others to define that.'"

While Walker was careful to note his thoughts weren't "anything I'm advocating for," he gave voice to many who would like to avoid a culture war over the issue.
