God defined marriage. Those who try to redefine it might as well be trying to redefine “up” and “down,” before jumping off eighty foot cliffs.
Believe me, the rocks at the bottom won’t care about your definitions.
I didn’t read it that way. I read it as Cruz and Lee saying that states can’t be discriminated against by the Fed if those states define marriage in a way consistent with the values of its citizens.
It would be possible to say that states shouldn’t be in the marriage business at all, but they are, and even if they weren’t, they’d still have to relate to married people, so it would behoove them to have some understanding of what constituted that in their particular state.
