Equality in Bloom

by Jeremy Hooper
"As a civil rights lawyer for 23 years, there is no question at all in my mind that as a matter of constitutional law, the federal court must strike down Screen Shot 2010-01-12 At 10.29.29 Am-1any law that creates a subclass of Americans, shutting them out of legal privileges and protections available to others, merely because they are gay.

Demeaning and disrespecting gay people is a constitutional affront.
"

insure domestic Tranquility
promote the general Welfare
secure the Blessings of Liberty
