Don Feder of the World Congress of Families (well, some families; no icky gay people allowed) isn’t going to let his fellow wingnuts get all the attention for their hysterical overreaction to the Supreme Court’s marriage rulings. He says we’re now “doomed to extinction.”
Writing for the majority, Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy – Ronald Reagan’s most tragic mistake, surpassing even Bush ’41 – said the wicked and iniquitous DOMA “places same-sex couples in an unstable position of being in second-tier marriages. The differentiation demeans the couple, whose moral and sexual choices the Constitution protects….”
Of course, the Constitution does no such thing. It no more protects “sexual choices” (under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments) than it creates a sphere of privacy (under the First Amendment) which permits abortion-on-demand. A society incapable of differentiating between a family and a perversion is doomed to extinction.
Really? it doesn’t protect sexual choices or a right to privacy? Okay, let’s pass a law saying that Don Feder can no longer have sex with his wife without an audience and video recording devices. What, that’s not allowed? But you don’t have any constitutional right to privacy or making your own sexual choices. You just said so. Oh wait, that only applies to people having sex in ways you don’t approve of. How convenient for you.
