Veterans benefits for gay married couples still denied.
Not everyone is ready to call last week's Supreme Court decisions about Prop 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act a victory for civil rights. Let's take a look at who is ready to keep up the fight and claim that they have been injured by gay marriage.
It looks like Howard Kurtz decided to grease the wheels to make his transition to Fox a little easier during his final show on CNN. Nothing like carrying a little water for your new employer on your way out the door.
To no one's surprise, these right-wing hate mongers like the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins aren't taking it very well now that the Supreme Court has ruled against them in the DOMA and Prop 8 cases.
We all knew the DOMA ruling would blow the minds of NOM and their acolytes, but harming the rule of law by upholding it strikes an interestingly ambivalent stance.
Saw this at our friends at Raw Story, and this part <a href="http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/06/26/gohmert-same-sex-marriage-ruling-could-be-the-end-of-a-great-civilization/">made me chuckle.</a>
The Daily Show's John Oliver took apart Justice Antonin Scalia, the wingnut House Republicans and Sen. Rand Paul following their reaction to the Supreme Court's rulings on Prop 8 and DOMA this week.
Sen. Rand Paul wonders if the striking down of DOMA will lead to man-on-dog weddings.
Yeah, and Jesus would be crying considering all those critical things he had to say about gays in the New Testament.
Between the Voting Rights Act and today's marriage decisions, the Supreme Court is sending mixed messages about states' rights, individual rights and federalism.
