DOMA, Section 3: Unconstitutional


“To conclude, many Americans believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman, and most Americans livein states where that is the law today,” the decision states. “One virtue of federalism is that it permits this diversity of governance based on local choice, but this applies as well to the states that have chosen to legalize same-sex marriage. Under current Supreme Court authority, Congress’ denial of federal benefits to same-sex couples lawfully married in Massachusetts has not been adequately supported by any permissible federal interest.”

    Even a clock is right twice in one day. This is a great victory for Liberty and Civil Rights. Maybe, rather than being threatened, ‘traditional’ married couples will be inspired by the love and effort and cooperation in most same sex relationships and make an effort to improve and sustain their own, and fundamentalist haters will stop improperly quoting Leviticus with bacon on their breath.
