Breaking Duh! news:
[T]he 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston said the [Defense of Marriage Act] discriminates against gay couples by not giving them the same rights and privileges as heterosexual couples and is unconstitutional.
My intro was not meant to make light of this ruling. It was meant only as an indication of how utterly unintelligible and mindlessly prejudiced I find opposition to its kind. Why the precise sexual orientation of any loving couple, married or not, should grab the U.S. Congress's attention is--I'm sorry--simply beyond me.
For that matter, why Mitt Romney's religion's originalist position on marriage should be of any jurisprudential concern is beyond me, too. (True, even farther beyond me is why any sane woman would want to marry one of us insensitive brutes, let alone three or four of them wanting to marry and share the very same insensitive brute.)
What the hell. What business is it of ours?
I guess I'm possessed by the unalarmed demons of damn-the-torpedoes libertarianism, which, when it comes to its expression in civil liberties and human rights, is still struggling to find rationally unacceptable limits.
