In a display of complete disrespect for what the White House represents, President Barack Hussein Obama lit the W.H. up like a Christmas tree to celebrate the SCOTUS ruling on gay marriage.
Obama declared that, “Today, we can say in no uncertain terms that we have made our union a little more perfect,” Obama said.
Before that, Obama tweeted using the hashtag “#LoveWins” and the White House account changed its logo to an image of the White House seal covered in rainbow colors, bearing a resemblance to the actual building’s appearance Friday evening.
I wonder how this will play out in the dozen states that still have anti-sodomy laws on the books 10 years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled they are unconstitutional.
The Supreme Court ruled in Lawrence v. Texas in 2003 that it is unconstitutional to bar consensual sex between adults, calling it a violation of the 14th Amendment.
One such state is Louisiana, where gay rights groups contend police have used anti-sodomy laws to target gay men. But state lawmakers sided with religious and conservative groups in refusing to repeal the law last week.
Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, said Sarah Warbelow, legal director for the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights organization.
