Interstate Recognition of Same-Sex Marriage: It’s Constitutional. It’s Biblical.

What’s your standard for enacting laws? Is it a legal standard, in which all laws must fit within the U.S. Constitution, the supreme law of the land? Is it a Christian theocratic standard, in which all laws must be compatible with the Christian Bible? Under either standard, the recognition of same-sex marriages across state lines [...]

Separate and Unequal America Under Obama Anti-Gay Agenda
