Uncommon Commentary #271: The Fact that I'm a Doman Doesn't Make Me a DOMAn

The Defense of Marriage Act or DOMA is not, contrary to the bluster of "Gay-rights activists" and to the implication of its own title, what it ought to be: a law against unnatural, unreasonable, and ungodly "same-sex marriage".  Like the defunct so-called "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, it's a Clinton-era compromise, neither enforcing nor preventing the legalization of homosexual wedlock but reserving to the States the decision whether to legalize it or not.  The real reason why leftists hate it is that, being leftists, they can't bear to allow anyone the potential to exercise his will in opposition to theirs.
