Keep DOMA in perspective
Some perspective on the recent Supreme Court rulings may be helpful.
DOMA being struck down doesn’t mean religious institutions now have to conduct same-sex marriages, merely that such marriages will be recognized by the law as equal to any other marriage between two people.
And the Court did not strike down Proposition 8, but simply ruled that the defendants lacked legal standing to sue; Prop 8 was already repealed by the voters, and so its day is done.
