House GOP: Fuck State Rights

Its funny how, Republicans are more than willing to “infringe” on the “rights” of state’s when it fits their political ideology:

A handful of House Republicans and two Democrats waded into the culture wars today, launching a bill that would put a halt to recognizing same-sex marriage in the District of Columbia.

Does anyone find it amusing that Republicans opposed using federal powers to stop state sanctioned racism but are jumping over one another to use federal power to stop gays from getting married? Moral of the story: it’s worse to be gay than racist. Terri Schavio must be rolling in her grave right now.

Personally I’m still waiting to hear why allowing consensual adults to marry undermines marriage. But of course, no conservative really has an answer for that.
