So much for legal…

Rants

This is just WRONG! :let_it_all_out
Now I understand that the DOMA says that states don’t have to recognize gay marriages performed in another state, which I don’t believe is right either, if hetero couples get legally married in any state or country for that matter, their marriage is valid no matter where they go, the same benefit should apply for gay couples who are legally married!
So in reading over this, it also ‘defines’ the word ‘spouse’ according to the federal government, ‘spouse’ is only used to define ‘one man and one woman’.
First thought that comes to mind is “then :wtf is W getting his panties in a wad trying to amend the constitution for?
Second thought that comes to mind is these marriages are LEGAL, why can they not be recognized as such by the IRS?
“King George” seems to forget that what he is trying to do, and that the DOMA already in place, are, in fact, UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!
yes, that’s right, Amendment 14, Section 1 clearly states…


All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

And before some of you start hollering about the ‘immoral’ aspect of it, let me remind you of a little thing we call Seperation of Church and State while, not stated specifically in the Constitution, is certainly implied, and my religion is obviously not your religion, otherwise that whole ‘love thy neighbor as thyself’ thing would have a lot more meaning for you.

    George wants to be famous. He wants to make history. And I think he will be famous and make his mark on history but I think the legacy he leaves will be one of disgrace to the American people. Let’s face it, George just isn’t smart enough to be screwing around with the constitution.
    George can’t spell or pronounce most of the words in the constitution, let alone use them correctly in a sentence. We’re going to allow him to interpret and rewrite it?

    I rememeber the uproar when John F. Kennedy was elected as President. People assumed that the U.S. would be ruled by the Pope. It seems to me that the group the president is preaching to is FAR scarier than the Pope! You would think that everything he has set in motion based on his concept of morality would be challenged in the Supreme Court as being unconsititutional. With enough protest, you could keep his changes tied up in court until he is out of office. He might get a constitutional ammendment started, but with a little luck the rest of us will come to our senses and shoot down the far right.
