LADY LIBERTY SHOULD BE AS BLIND AS THEMIS AS REGARDS SEX BETWEEN CONSENTING ADULTS.
The U.S. Supreme Court, a tripartite branch of Government set up by the Founding Fathers (remember them?), has handed down some decisions. One of these decisions, concerning same-sex marriage, is unpopular with religious fundamentalists. Regardless whether the Court’s opinion is or isn’t well-reasoned, or is or isn’t solidly grounded upon Constitutional principles is of NO consequence. The idiots in Congress can enact legislation circumventing the Court’s ruling. But whether Federal Law should bind the States is a subject of considerable debate. I endear to the Ronald Reagan political philosophy that the Federal Government should keep its nose O-U-T of the States’ biz — especially as regards what goes on behind closed doors.
