Leroy Huizenga on the Bulverism of same-sex marriage supporters:
The problem with making consent the sole criterion of the Good is that it’s merely a social convention. “Consent” is an idea forged in the wake of the widespread death of metaphysics and it thus lacks any ultimate grounding. It will disappear once a majority of the strong decides it’s no longer useful to their interests. Put differently, without robust reason reading nature rightly, we’re left with little more than power. Indeed, the postmodern turn to questions of power arises largely outside of Christian contexts as a reaction to the crisis of modernity, the failure of secular reason to secure its promises of human utopia on earth.
