Cerebral atherosclerosis and various infectious organisms might have combined to produce this evolution in Clinton’s thinking regarding how we should spend federal dollars, providing benefits to couples who both could have been working all their lives, not supporting children, thereby having more opportunity to accrue their own retirement funds and individual health plans.
By the way, this SCOTUS decision affects only the way the Federal government looks at gay marriage, and not how the states view it, with the exception of vacating a court appeal supporting Prop 8 in California. It’s not as big a deal as some might think.
What do you think should be the next move for churches, which will need to protect their First Amendment rights to oppose homosexual Activity on a moral basis? Obama assures us that HE will not force churches to officiate gay marriages. Like all of his other social agendas…….. someone else will do the forcing for him.
**The Supreme court vacated the 9th Circuit Court decision on California’s Prop 8, so that restriction on homosexual marriage remains the law of the land in that state. The federal court takes no position on the states decisions regarding same sex marriage. Any further attempts to appeal Prop 8 will have to take place in the California state court system.
