‘Evolution,’ Complete

Posted on | March 1, 2013 | 9 Comments

You knew this was coming, right?

Completing what President Obama called his “evolution” on the question of gay marriage, the administration late Thursday called on the Supreme Court to strike down California’s voter-passed initiative invalidating same-sex marriages.
In the new brief, the Justice Department argues that the ban on gay marriage violated same-sex couples’ constitutional guarantee to equal protection under the law. But the brief focused on the California case and stopped short of calling for a nationwide guarantee that same-sex couples have a right to marry.
“The government seeks to vindicate the defining constitutional ideal of equal treatment under the law,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement Thursday evening. “Throughout history, we have seen the unjust consequences of decisions and policies rooted in discrimination.”

House of Eratosthenes is not enthused.

    Am I anti-science if I don’t believe in this particular evolution?

    Yes. You are also a meanie and a troglodyte in their minds.

    This was no evolution, but by design. Intelligent design? Uh, not so much.

    No, it was quite intelligent, in that it made his election easier.

    I don’t have a thing against Unicorns. But I do hate me some Jackelopes and Spotted owls.

    If only Ann Dunham had been more deeply committed to buggery than every other time, what a bright world it would be today.

    Why hate them? They’re delicious with black pepper and a tomato glaze.
