In Kentucky, a federal judge John G. Heyburn II ruled that same-sex couples have a right to marry on Tuesday. Simply put, he shredded the ridiculous anti-gay argument that the Far Right keep putting forward to defend their anti-gay position on marriage. Here are a few killer quotes from his decision with which to celebrate the Independence Day Weekend:
"In America, even sincere and long-held religious beliefs do not trump the constitutional rights of those who happen to have been out-voted."
Rejecting the only justification that lawyers for Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear had offered — that traditional marriages contribute to a stable birth rate and the state's long-term economic stability, Judge Heyburn proclaimed in the ultimate put-down, "These arguments are not those of serious people."
I'm going back East for a few days over the holiday weekend but will be back blogging soon thereafter. Here's hoping all my Natural City Man blog followers celebrate the holiday with a bang!
