Just Great

Since the constitutional amendment to bar gay marriage was defeated the Republicans have been looking for other ways to fight homosexualism. The Marriage Protection Act is part of the right's latest offensive and has already passed the House. The bill would prevent any federal court, including the Supreme Court, from ruling on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. This of course undermines the principle of seperation of powers within the government by cutting out the judicial branch of government. It is interesting how being absolutely sure that gay marriage doesn't become a nation institution takes priority over protecting foundations of our government for the Republicans. Then again, as Rick Santorum said "Isn't that the ultimate homeland security—standing up and defending marriage?"
