In the video above, Matt Baume talks about four states that have to try to defend their bans on gay marriage before the US Supreme Court, and how utterly absurd their arguments are. The states just sound stupid, to be honest.
I already talked about Kentucky, but the main thing to know is that the states desperately trying to defend their bans on marriage equality have come up with logically and morally bankrupt arguments, and the Supreme Court can’t help but notice that.
The arguments reinforce the point that there’s no such thing as a rational, non-religious argument against marriage equality—no such argument has ever been offered because no such argument actually exists. ALL arguments against marriage equality so far have been based on religion alone, and while people are obviously entitled to their religious beliefs, they have no right to use purely secular law to force those beliefs onto everyone else.
Watching the video, I saw the obvious disdain that Matt has for the stupid arguments the states are making. Actually, it’s very hard to see how ANY sentient being can see things any differently—unless they’re too busy laughing at the states’ pathetically bad arguments.
Meanwhile, the clock is ticking to the start of the oral arguments later this month.
