The Supreme Court has cleared the way for gay marriage by ruling against a key point of the Defense of Marriage Act and by declining to rule on California’s Proposition 8, leaving a lower court order that ruled against that law intact.
So now that’s over and we can move on to more important matters, right?
A group of conservative House Republicans blasted the decisions on same-sex marriage issued Wednesday by the Supreme Court as legally inconsistent and detrimental to the future of the nation’s children. One lawmaker pledged to soon file a constitutional amendment to reinstate the Defense of Marriage Act.
“A narrow radical majority of the court has substituted their personal views for the constitutional decisions of the American voters and their elected representatives,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.). “My response will be later this week to file a federal marriage amendment.”
It’s like beating your head against the wall.
