Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has an anti-gay-marriage editorial in today's Wall Street Journal. The title of the editorial is "One Man, One Woman." Romney writes,

...marriage is not "an evolving paradigm." It is deeply rooted in the history, culture and tradition of civil society. It predates our Constitution and our nation by millennia. The institution of marriage was not created by government and it should not be redefined by government.

I've said this before, but let me remind you again that Romney's own great-grandfather would beg to differ. Romney's father was former Michigan governor Gene Romney, whose grandfather, as The Washington Post has noted, "emigrated to Mexico in 1886 with his three wives and children after Congress outlawed polygamy."
