In case you haven’t heard, the latest state to gain full marriage equality is Oklahoma! And of course once again Brian Brown, head Spokesbigot of the National Organization for Marriage (The oxymoron group!) is once again trying to make a 10th Amendment argument for the right of states to discriminate against the gay community vis a vis marriage rights.
This one is pretty brief compared to the angst he displayed on Utah or New Mexico.
Today, the National Organization for Marriage renews its call for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The decision by U.S District Court Judge Terence Kern in Oklahoma is the latest in a string of examples of the dangers posed to state marriage laws when the avenue of debate is the federal court system. We need firm legislative action to protect the rights of the states and their citizens to make their own determinations regarding the definition of marriage without interference from federal appointees either in the courts or within the executive branch.
And calling it interference is telling. Let me rephrase it for him: Brian Brown wants the will of the religiously bigoted to be the rule of law in the land. And all I can say to that is, over my dead fucking body.
