My only question is this:  How many of these changes is the Religious Right actually happy with?

I mean, we know Phyllis Schlafly probably doesn’t support the 1993 change, because she doesn’t believe marital rape exists.  The 1769 change probably is a bit of a thorn in many anti-gay bigots’ sides.  1967?  Hell, Mississippi’s still having trouble with that.

Perhaps the greater lesson to be learned here is that it’s important to see the same-sex marriage fight not as simply anti-gay, but as just one more thing that chips away at the frail patriarchy wingnuts need to preserve in order to sustain some semblance of self worth.
