To me, drafting legislation that prevents gay couples from marrying is the same thing as drafting legislation that says people with brown hair can't marry someone with red hair. It's absurd and an unbelievable abuse of power on the part of the federal government.

But marriage is only valid on a government basis. Marriage physically means absolutely nothing to anything other than a government.

I've always thought of it as subsidized pro-creation, but that metaphor is problematic for a number of reasons.

my thoughts are that at one time, marriage was defined as one white man and one white woman. no mixing of the races. my thoughts are that there was no need for this amendment. my thoughts are that if they wanted a fight, they now have one.

the rest of my thoughts, well, i'm not in the mood to type them out.

how would it work if the federal government passed a law legalizing gay marriage? there's 20+ states with bans on gay marriage, would they all just be immediately overturned? i feel like all those shitty states would turn it into a legal battle.

read this just now:

Mecklenburg County Commissioner Bill James asked county staff Wednesday morning about stripping health coverage from domestic partners of gay county employees, which he termed "faux marriage benefits."
"Now that Amendment One has passed, it obviously is illegal to offer this benefit, as there is now only one ‘domestic legal union’ recognized in the state," James wrote in an email to other commissioners and county leaders.
