A federal judge in Massachusetts has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. The decision, by Judge Joseph Tauro, said the DOMA law violated the Equal Protection clause.
Here is a link to the New York Times report:
If this ruling is affirmed by the Supreme Court, then the federal government will be forced to recognize same sex marriages.
In that event, same sex marriages will become the law of the land.
If same sex marriage becomes the standard of American law, how will that affect the heterosexual majority of Americans?
Will the Catholic church doctrine, of opposite sex marriage only, run afoul of the law?
What do you think about this?
