Queers have money too. When my daughter had her wedding here all of her queer NYC friends showed up. Loved watching them dance. My morgbot brothers were having a shitfit.
After yesterday happened I decided to have some fun by offering the property for weddings. You can come and perform the services.
Just wear your Elsie costume and you’ll fit right in.
“There is no allowance constitutionally that invites our government to define the religious covenant of marriage.”
The author doesn’t understand the ruling. Only section 6 was declared unconstitutional. That section relates to what benefits homosexual partners of federal employees get. The Constitution does give the federal government power to determine what to pay it’s employees and when.
So Section 6 did not exceed the powers of Congress. But it offended the progressive morality of 5 justices. So they put their morality into the constitution with absolutely no justification to make themselves feel good about themselves.
“DOMA created the precedent that the definition of marriage should be defined by the government.”
With respect, governments have been in the marriage definition business for centuries.
A condition of Utah being accepted as a state was for Utah to make polygamy illegal. Bigamy has been illegal for centuries. Homosexual marriage is just the cause de jour for fashionable progressives.
I agree with her. It easily could’ve gone the other way and made divorce illegal. Great for wife beaters, terrible for battered wives. That would be government enforcing the “till death do us part” part of the oath of marriage.
In Indiana, one must be licensed from the State.
How is it in Utah?
I could bring a couple of lovely bridesmaids and groomsmen.
They would even touch up your overgrown shrubbery while there.
LOL You gotta be a Bishop I guess. Daughters marrier was Allison Ottley a SLC lib minister and daughter of the former director of the Tab Choir.
I know. I’m just glad she got married at age forty. Hope a grandchild might result.
And her husband Frank is a good southerner.
