We recognize that same-sex marriage makes some people deeply uncomfortable. However, inertia and apprehension are
not legitimate bases for denying same-sex couples due process
and equal protection of the laws. Civil marriage is one of the
cornerstones of our way of life. It allows individuals to celebrate and publicly declare their intentions to form lifelong partnerships, which provide unparalleled intimacy, companionship, emotional support, and security. The choice of whether and whom to marry is an intensely personal decision that alters the course of an individual’s life. Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance.

  • Me: (via email) Sorry I haven't returned the camping lantern I borrowed. Mom keeps asking about it. I'll return it this weekend.
  • Dad: don't worry, i have more lanterns & flashlights. mom's need for this lantern probably stems from some deep seated childhood trauma, perhaps wandering around the projects in the dark in the great Northeast blackout of like 1965 . . . and likely exacerbated by the whole Jewish Chanukah thing - it must have been incredibly stressful sitting there for eight nights expecting the lights to go out . . . resulting in like a residual cultural PTSD. that's maybe why mom needs the comfort of this lantern to ward off the darkness . . .me, i just like buying stuff at home depot. that's why i have lots of lights . . .

These arguments are not those of serious people.

-  US District Judge Heyburn, striking down Kentucky’s same sex marriage ban

Corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their ‘personhood’ often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of ‘We the People’ by whom and for whom our Constitution was established.
