Still Defending Marriage!

I'm truly sorry that heterosexual marriage is doing as badly as it seems to be, in that yet another state's voters think it needs defending. But Bill Clinton must be proud of the Maine electorate, for defending marriage in the same way he did, when he signed the bill whose title states that it does just that, in 1996.

I still don't understand how one defends marriage by applying it to some couples' relationships and not others. But I'm sure that's just my intellectual deficiency.

Yesterday, the state of Maine voted by a 53% to 47% margin, to repeal a law that was passed by their legislature and signed by their governor, which would have allowed same-sex marriage in that state.

Perhaps Clinton should get together with his fellow stalwart defenders of marriage, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, and celebrate Maine's decision. But they'll need to be careful not to invite Barney Frank. He's just the type they're trying to defend against!
