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.
"
-Lisa Bloom, writing for CNN.com

Right.

to form a more perfect Union
establish Justice
insure domestic Tranquility
promote the general Welfare
secure the Blessings of Liberty

And no preamble provides for the common anti-equality defense: "But we don't gays to civilly marry because our personal faith says no!"

Jeremy, the same Bible-b.s. was used during the Civil War-era, as well as during Segregation, and inter-racial marriage in an effort to subjugate a minority each and every time. When will this country learn?!
