DOMA Had Nothing To Do With Love

July 11, 2013

To The Reader’s Forum: The writer in Friday’s (June 28) Reader’s Forum letter made it a point to state that overturning DOMA had everything to do with allowing people to love each other without fear......

50s4ever uses the Norman P Carlson Defense. He claims you are bigoted if you don't accept his bigotry. Nice try but no cigar! I think we know who threw the hissy fit here, 50s4ever. I worry about you.

Well Emelye, what about those 11 million? Is that an assumption? How about being an engineer?

Emelye, so what if the"Obama Administration" has deported more illegals than any other? That's because there are more crossing the border. And, what about the 11 million that are still here?

Public assistance - you are right on that one. Never been on it. Never will. "His" arrogance and "his" obviously unearned and unexamined sense of privilege is written all over t"his" sentence"

WOW, I thought you were an "engineer" not a psychologist. You know nothing about me and what "I have earned". So get your panties out of a bunch and move on.

It seems Seadog is laboring under a number of misconceptions too.

"He" wrote, "Our Federal representatives don't have to go under Obamacare." Well yeah. We agree on this one. It stinks that the Congress can exempt itself from its own laws. How many times have the Republicans in the House of Reps voted against this? Not as many times as the wasted votes against Obamacare, I'll bet.

"He" also writes, "Our Hispanic brothers and sisters can cross the border ILLEGALLY, and are allowed to stay." Where are you living, Seadog? Are you unaware that Obama's administration has deported ore illegal immigrants than any other before?

"Millions don't have to work and get free food, rent, heat, and all the other goodies." I'm guessing Seadog has never been on any kind of public assistance. "His" arrogance and "his" obviously unearned and unexamined sense of privilege is written all over t"his" sentence.

Mr. Krasinski was right about one thing. DOMA had nothing to do with love. It was all about prejudice. Tax-paying gays should have all of the same rights as hetero couples and to say that same-sex marriage was all about raiding the US Treasury is one of the silliest positions I have seen on this issue.

Seadog, it's called "selective equality". It is applied when convenient to the progressive/liberal cause. You will NEVER see it in favor of a conservative cause. NEVER.

I didn't claim YOU said "gender identity is fluid" if the post wasn't removed by some wus, you could read it again and see that Em. But that wouldn't work for you, would it? Better to make up stuff as you go along.

"They have to treat you like you're equal" right Bluesman,everyone should be treated as equal. Unfortunately that is never the case. Our Federal representatives don't have to go under Obamacare. Our Hispanic brothers and sisters can cross the border ILLEGALLY, and are allowed to stay. Millions don't have to work and get free food, rent, heat, and all the other goodies. So, when the Emelys of this forum fess up and admit a lot of people don't get treated equally, then maybe I'll take "her" outrage seriously. After all, what's good for the goose.......

You have me confused with the government. They have to treat you like you're equal. As a private citizen on a personal basis I don't. That really irks you, and I'm glad.

". . .concerning the effect of the law on married people versus single people."

I guess they can tell the difference between single people and married gay couples, Seadog.

yep, seems that 50s4ever really is going off the deep end. Sorry that LGBT people bug you so much, 50s4ever. Maybe if you went and lived in a cave somewhere of the middle of the desert perhaps, you wouldn't have to deal with people like me and vice versa. Win/win!

Coppergoat, please see #4, I hope that's not too snoty for you. "Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO identified federal laws in which benefits, rights, and privileges are contingent on marital status. GAO found that: (1) it conducted searches for various words or word stems chosen to elicit marital status, in several electronic databases that contain the text of federal laws; (2) this collection of laws is as complete and representative as can be produced by a global electronic search of the kind GAO conducted; (3) its data include only laws classified to the United States Code; and (4) no conclusions can be drawn from its identification of a law as one in which marital status is a factor, concerning the effect of the law on married people versus single people"

The GAO identified 1,138 federal benefits provided to married couples in its "Defense of Marriage Act: An Update to Prior Report", General Accounting Office, 2004. I expect the thumbs down came because it's common knowledge that married couples receive substantial benefits under federal law, tax and otherwise, and your question seemed lazy at best, snide and snotty at worst.

So you don't think gender identity is fluid, eh em? Where's the cut off? Pun intended.

Spoke twice, Censored twice. Throw a hissy fit because I think you're creeps and should stay in the closet. I could care less what you think. You're nothing. Unable to grasp the most basic facts of life. The "fluid" came from one of your common websites. Obviously Jamestown has fallen far enough to give you all a home.
