AP reports on the US Supreme Court agreeing to decide same-sex marriage:
One of the plaintiffs from Ohio, James Obergefell, said he was crying "tears of joy and sadness" after the court accepted his appeal. In 2013, Obergefell flew to Maryland with his dying partner, John Arthur, so they could marry before Arthur's death. The couple sued to force Ohio to list Arthur as married on his death certificate, which would allow the men to be buried next to each other. Arthur died 15 months ago.Really? That was the winning issue?
"I can't wait to walk up those steps and have the Supreme Court understand that we're just like everyone else," Obergefell said.
This guy suffers from some sort of mental illness. His friend is dead. They are not just like everyone else.
He got his same-sex ceremony. So his lawsuit is just to make people understand something because of some trivial notation stamped on a death certificate? It is hard to imagine a more stupid reason for the Supreme Court to hear a case.
Maybe the fathers rights activists have been doing it all wrong. Instead of arguing substantive issues, maybe they would be better off with some pathetic man whining about the fine print on a death certificate.
