Pity, pity. I’d fully favor some kree8tiv interpretations to do GOOD things. The abyss stares also into me.
Who could have imagined, even in 2000 when Vermont got civil unions (and the GOP won the State House as a result! In Vermont! Just 15 years ago!) that we would need a constitutional amendment to stop the Supreme Court from imposing homo marriage nationwide.
I didn’t think that we would *need* an amendment at the time, but I certainly supported it just to make sure that liberal judges didn’t impose it via judicial fiat. But John McCain said that it wasn’t nevessary because we had DOMA. Unfortunately, I was right and he was wrong.
