Maggie Gallagher: DOMA Will Be Overturned

by David Badash on December 10, 2012

in Legal Issues,Marriage,News

Yesterday, conservative pundits and strategists alike proclaimed the anti-gay marriage sentiment in America is “quite literally…dying” and it’s just “common sense” to embrace same-sex marriage. Now, the queen of the radical anti-gay marriage movement, Maggie Gallagher, has proclaimed that she believes DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 that bans the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, will be overturned by the Supreme Court.

“I think [Justice Anthony] Kennedy will overturn DOMA (perhaps joined by Roberts) and then uphold the right of states to refuse to accept gay marriage (i.e. uphold Prop 8),” she writes in response to a lazy David Blankenhorn blog post.

Wow.

Of course, Gallagher has qualified her thoughts — can’t give away the store, literally, since Gallagher has made her fortune battling same-sex marriage.

“The victories this November for gay marriage at the polls make that outcome more likely,” Gallagher notes. “Justice Kennedy will likely see it as not at all unlikely voters will overturn Prop 8 soon and see that as a much better outcome than constitutionalizing gay marriage.”

So, does this mean Gallagher thinks DOMA is unconstitutional? Jury is still out on that one, but it’s curious she’s not fighting it…

It is great to see Maggie yielding any ground at all.

Why was there a pro-UFO article on this site earlier today but now it's gone?

Even if Maggie concedes that DOMA will fall, please continue using that picture of her – I really love how it looks like a thumb with eyes nose and lips drawn on it.

There's also a wart that has been turned into a "chin."

States have an obligation to respect other state's laws — like the fact that some states permit first-cousin marriages and most don't. But all the states acknowledge that those marriage are legal. DOMA prevents that. When DOMA is found to be unconstitutional, states that have banned same-sex marriage will have to acknowledge ALL marriages from other states. I look forward to Rick Perry's head exploding when that happens.
