Today Judge John Heyburn of the 6th Circuit Court ruled that Kentucky’s laws banning same-sex couples from being married in the state are unconstitutional. As a Kentuckian in a same sex marriage (married legally in the state of Maryland and Jewishly under the chuppah at our shul) this is obviously very joyous news to me. However that joy is heightened by the epic side eye attitude the judge threw at Kentucky’s governor, his lawyers and the arguments they put forth for why the state should discriminate against gay couples.
These arguments are not those of serious people.
The state’s attempts to connect the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage to its interest in economic stability and in “ensuring humanity’s continued existence” are at best illogical and even bewildering.
Assuring equal protection for same-sex couples does not diminish the freedom of others to any degree. Thus, same-sex couples’ right to marry seems to be a uniquely “free” constitutional right. Hopefully, even those opposed to or uncertain about same-sex marriage will see it that way in the future.
Well said Judge Heyburn, well said.
I had a very busy and trying week so time spent reading on the internet was limited. Here are a few of the best things I did manage to read and see.

I have a lot of criticisms for Israel but this path the Presbyterians are walking down is a dangerous one, one that inflicts pain upon the vast majority of Jewry.

It is clear that the fundamental right to marry shall not be deprived to some individuals based solely on the person they choose to love. In time, Americans will look at the marriage of couples such as Plaintiffs, and refer to it simply as a marriage – not a same sex marriage.
Richard L. Young, United States District Court Judge whose ruling struck down Indiana’s gay marriage ban today
In future generations, the label “same sex marriage” will be abandoned, to be replaced simply by “marriage.” We are a better people than what these (anti-gay marriage) laws represent, and it is time to discard them into the ash heap of history.
