Oooh, juicy. A federal district court judge struck down DOMA, the federal law that restricts marriage to heterosexuals. Uh oh! Time for the shit storm!
Judge Joseph Tauro wrote:
“This court is soundly convinced that the government’s proffered rationales…are without ‘footing in the realities of the subject…And when the proffered rationales for a law are clearly and manifestly implausible, a reviewing court may infer that animus is the only explicable basis. [Because] animus alone cannot constitute a legitimate government interest, this court finds that DOMA lacks a rational basis to support it.”
