Striking Down DOMA

The Supreme Court’s decision to strike down DOMA — with the irony of Clarence Thomas’ dissent duly noted — is a major step forward in equality. Don’t let those on the Right, or in the pulpit, tell you that God will now take away God’s blessing from the U.S., or that your marriage and children are now threatened, or that taking a conservative, traditionalist stand on the issue of the Bible and homosexuality will now land you in jail, or that the slippery slope leading to polygamy has now been climbed. Instead, thank God that enshrined civil discrimination against gay couples has been struck down, and if you’re suddenly terrified about the state of marriage and morality in the United States, do what I do — work on your own, and don’t contribute to the enshrinement of discrimination against other people.
