A Federal Appeals Court Agrees With Me

Wonder what Scalia will say?  He won't agree with me.  We all know this gets his Jesuit hairshirt tied in a knot and the decision will probably turn on whether the increasingly erratic and delusional Justice Kennedy show a trace of reasonableness and common sense.

[BOSTON (AP) — A federal appeals court Thursday declared that the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutionally denies federal benefits to married gay couples, a ruling all but certain to wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court.

In its unanimous ruling, the three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston said the 1996 law that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman discriminates against gay couples because it doesn't give them the same rights and privileges as heterosexual couples.]
