The party of states' rights!*

*eh, sorta.

Here's a piece by a former professor mine. Love him - but completely disagree with his opinion here.

"This is a time for choosing.

"The options are (1) to do nothing, thereby allowing a few activist judges to redefine marriage as they see fit, or (2) amend the Constitution to reflect the settled will of the people.

"To protect marriage and preserve constitutional government, we must proceed with the democratic process of amending the Constitution."

Um, "settled will?" Honestly, come on now, it's not settled, and yes any minority is significant on a topic this big and important. This is a time for choosing, indeed. I choose love over hate. Open over closed. And family over most everything else. Sorry, Professor Spalding, I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you on this one.

And furthermore: bad Republican! no biscuit! what about states' rights?
