    This is just one more example of the timeless brilliance this country has to offer with our liberal human resources.

    Yep, no matter how carefully something is worded to protect individual rights from oppression, people have a 'Genius' for twisting it to enforce the perverse ideas of the few onto the many and so to turn the tables and oppress the many with their legally-protected 'Special consideration' or 'Unique accommodation,' which is where the only 'genius' in this whole thing lies. Jurists like Ginsburg say exactly the same thing about the jury system, until it produces a result they don't like, such as the Zimmerman case, when they decry it as arbitrary and outmoded. Welcome to 1933.

    Gay marriage isn't an equal protection issue. Gay men and lesbians have always had the same right to marry someone of the opposite sex as straights. It is not the function of government to bless the random hookups of every sexual minority in the country. Gay marriage recognition only makes sense if you believe that there are no inherent differences between men and women, and that it is the function of the federal government to obliterate any perception that is contrary to that.
