NYT: Same-Sex Marriage Amendment Is Struck Down by Georgia Judge
Ironically, this is what could happen if Minnesota would pass the Bachmann amendment.
UPDATE: Craig Westover writes:
The judge's ruling essentially says that the combination of defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman AND banning civil unions (the legal equivalent of marriage in Minnesota terms) effectively prevents voters from voting for a ban on same-sex marriage but voting against a ban on civil unions. In other words, people holding both those positions were denied a right to vote their conviction.
How can a conservative that believes the people should decide questions about who can and cannot marry object to a ruling that assures each and every voter that ability?
I wonder what Westover's 6th District candidate, Michele Bachmann would say to that one.
