Court Declares Clinton-Era Defense of Marriage Act Unconstitutional

Posted on | May 31, 2012 | 20 Comments

“Progress” is happening so fast nowadays, eh? Back in the 1990s, President Clinton implemented “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and DOMA, which stood uncontested through the remainder of Clinton’s term and all through the eight years of Bush, but now — in the Obama era — these measures have been declared dreadfully oppressive.

Hope! Change! And it’s probably only a matter of time before homosexuality is declared compulsory, so that turning down an offer of sodomy is illegal “discrimination.”

    Also a bad idea: having XX chromosomes while in the womb.

    O Henny, Penny on line 1…

    People wonder why I advocate secession. “We have elections,” they say. “Just work to put Republicans in office.” Been there. Done that. And this is what we get.

    Sorry, Henny Penny was forcibly married to a Musloid who abused and sodomized her every day for the short remaunder of her life (she ended up “honor killed” six months later). Whereupon her widower married a duck and a golden retriever in a ceremony performed by the now “Reverend” Bawney Fwanks, of the 1st Church of Chicago Jesus, Musloid division (Sharia compliant).

    Mr. Pretty is probably feeling pretty good today…  

    Come on, it’s on topic.  You know he is going gay next!

    People should be free to do whatever they want, as long as what they’re doing doesn’t hurt other people. Suicide for instance. It’s just the natural ultimate final extension of abortion. You don’t want kids, you don’t want anything at all… I’m not just pro-choice, I’m pro-coolade. [iykwimaityd.]

    Also, I’m pro-choice when it comes to amputation of limbs. A person has a hand or a leg that offends him/her, cut the darn thing off. You want to talk about weight-loss results fast, I have the secret! Whether you find it between the legs or it is the legs, if someone doesn’t want it, a doctor should be forced–regardless of silly old traditions like the hippocratic oath–to chop off those unwanted parts.

    People should be able to marry non-sentient objects. Why can’t I get married to my computer? It’s a heck of a lot more entertaining than my current wife, plus it cleans the bathroom just as often. Don’t forget, with marriage comes a joint tax-return. I’m gonna absolutely love being able to claim my HP as a dependant.

    Well, at least in New York you can call someone gay and not get sued anymore or at least not lose the case. (it’s the NYT but don’t let that stop you.)

  • jwallin

    And it doesn’t talk back and use the credit card secretly. (or at least as far as YOU know.)

    Funny that no one ever called it the “Bill Clinton Defense of Marriage Act”.

    Run at the 1st Amendment to start in 3, 2, 1….  (I have no dog in this fight other than this one, but it’s a pretty big dog, so there’s that).

    Oh well…this is what happens when everybody wants to be nice…and refuses to read up on history.

    An offer you CAN refuse – claim you converted to Islam, and it’s discrimination if you aren’t allowed to stone the propositioner!

     Not secession. Another American Revolution followed by another “exile of the Tories.” They didn’t leave for Canada because they were asked nicely. More like “Leave or die.”

  • K-Bob

    Misdelivered leftist mail…

    You people are so damn discriminatory.  Equal rights and social justice demand that, since you got married to have access to your wife, then everyone should have access to your wife. Thank Barack for judicial activism!

    That’s really only a sweet deal for hetero males (or, to allude to my comment through the glass darkly, super butch, very wealthy homo males) — as a woman I’d have to pass.

    I think the conservative position on DOMA is the one that agrees with the court’s ruling here. States traditionally control marriage and the federal government was wrong to step in the way it did with DOMA. The court has simply turned the issue back over to the states, where it should be. States rights and all that.

    I’m enjoying reading the Brett Kimberlin coverage here, but the tone of this post really turns me off.
