I'm Worse Than Haggard

National Review gets personal:

I hope Ted Haggard does pray for Andrew Sullivan, because it is Sullivan and those on his side of the culture war who do much greater damage to our lives.

Earlier on, the author, David Klinghoffer makes the following argument:

This is why gay marriage threatens heterosexual marriage. When the awe in which people once held matrimony is diluted, by treating it as a man-made and thus amendable institution rather than a divinely determined one, heterosexuals find sexual sins of all sorts harder to resist.

It's an argument. And it is unpersuasive to me. But whether you agree with it or not, notice its logical basis: civil marriage is a "divinely determined one." The laws of this country are divinely determined. This is not close to a theocratic worldview. It is one.
