If the states have rightful control over who may marry, does the Federal government have the right to deny same-sex couples married under New York laws all the benefits it accords to male-female married pairs joined under Texas law? In other words, did you just come out for the repeal of DOMA?
It’s interesting that Perry’s handlers have decided that his theocon credentials are strong enough so he doesn’t have to out-anti-gay Michelle Bachmann. I was wondering which Republican would figure out that the gay issue is now a loser for the Right. I think the country has had enough of Governors of Texas, but if you want to worry about a Republican, Perry is your guy.
