Gay Marriage Goes Viral


130628sheep-scotus-gay-marriage-cartoon-Supreme Court swingman, Justice Anthony Kennedy, wrote the majority opinion overturning the Defense of Marriage Act. After writing that the issue of gay marriage should be left to the states he described its opponents as bigots. Here’s Rich Lowry in Politico:

The majority held that DOMA inflicts an “injury and indignity” on gay couples so severe that it denies “an essential part of the liberty protected by the Fifth Amendment.” It is motivated by a “‘bare congressional desire to harm a politically unpopular group.’” There is, in short, nothing to be said for it or the point of view of its supporters. Period. Full stop.

Those bigots would include Bill Clinton, who signed DOMA into law (but, newly enlightened, is glad to see it go), Barack Obama (until he changed his mind “the day before yesterday”), “342 members of the House, and 85 Senators”. Actually, most members of the human race were on board with the bigots until millions changed their minds – the day before yesterday .

    I’m with Kennedy, though I probably would have used the 10th amendment. Some things should be decided by the states. Take the subsidies out of the federal laws for marriage (no damn business of the federates anyway) and this would be a complete non-issue. It’s time to return domestic issues outside of inter-state commerce (by which I do not mean what congress has stretched that into) back to the states alone.

    And that includes tax policy. States should assess any damn way they please and remit to the federales only in proportion to their population.

    The sheep must be typical “name-calling,” Liberals.
