The morning after two important—and troubling—Supreme Court decisions in the Proposition 8 and Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) cases, here’s the lay of the land. The important takeaway: The marriage debate is every bit as live today as it was yesterday morning…and that means it is time to redouble our efforts to stand for marriage across America. Some key numbers following the decisions:
Earlier, in reaction to the Supreme Court decisions on DOMA and California’s Proposition 8, Congresswoman Michelle Bachman said that the Supreme Court “can’t undo the Holy word of God.” Whatever you may think of that statement, when asked for a response by ABC’s John Parkinson, the self-proclaimed devout Catholic House minority leader said, “who cares?”
In a 5 – 4 decision the Supreme Court ruled DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment. The majority opinion – Justice Kennedy joined the liberal justices – and its holding are confined to those lawful marriages. Roberts dissents, joined by Scalia who is joined by Thomas – Chief Justice joins in part.
