Fierce!

BOSTON (AP) — A U.S. judge in Boston has ruled that a federal gay marriage ban is unconstitutional because it interferes with the right of a state to define marriage.

U.S. District Judge Joseph Tauro on Thursday ruled in favor of gay couples’ rights in two separate challenges to the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA.

The state had argued the law denied benefits such as Medicaid to gay married couples in Massachusetts, where same-sex unions have been legal since 2004.

You ever notice that the same guys that argue that gay marriage “diminishes the sanctity of marriage” are the same guys that tell the newly engaged guys in the hockey lockeroom that “you’re out of your F’n mind!”  The official scorer has this one at “Bruce and Lance” 2, “Anti Gay Marriage guy” 1.
