Bertrand Russell on same-sex marriage?

From Bertrand Russell's essay "On the value of scepticism" in the collection Sceptical Essays (first published 1928):
The bulk of the population of every country is persuaded that all marriage customs other than its own are immoral, and that those who combat this view only do so in order to justify their own loose lives.
Does this remind you of some contemporary issue? It sure strikes me as familiar.
