On Friday, a unanimous (!!) Texas Supreme court flouted the
law by holding that same-sex married couples are not
eligible for spousal benefits supplied by the state.
In some kind of alternate universe, it is perhaps possible
that once SCOTUS held that the state must provide civil
marriage to same-sex couples, it left the issue of whether
the couples are entitled to all of the benefits of marriage
unanswered. But on Monday of this very week, SCOTUS
answered that question with crystal clarity. Arkansas
tried the same thing as Texas (*) and SCOTUS shot them down
without even bothering to ask for briefs or hearing oral
arguments (the case was that obvious).
And the Texas court went ahead with its ruling with the
full knowledge of what SCOTUS just did. Amazing!
(*) Arkansas refused to list a same-sex adoptive parent,
while always listing an opposite-sex adoptive parent, on a
child's birth certificate.
That is amazing. I wonder if the US is destined for
balkanization. (i.e., geographically. It's already the case
for our society.)
Always was the case it's just that Liberals want a centrally
mandated planning that they control rather than States having
any jurisdictional power.
You're just another rightwing child rapist who deserves to be
castrated with a dull knife..
