DISORDER IN THE COURT DEPT.
THE MORE THE MARRY-ER DEPT.
Today, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the Defense of Marriage of Act (DOMA) was unconstitutional — meaning that same-sex couples would receive the same federal benefits as other married couples. It’s a great day for equality, a great day for tolerance, and a terrible day for homosexuals with commitment issues. All in all, though, SCOTUS made a bold move — and it’s time to sing their praises.
SYMBOL MINDED DEPT.
Today, an Appeals Court in New York became the second in the country to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (which defines marriage as being between a man and a woman). No matter where you stand on the issue, after seeing this piece from MAD #438 back in February 2004, we can all agree that the real victims are MAD’s readers.

Lately, Chick-fil-A’s been in the fryer, after company President Dan Cathy came out in opposition to gay marriage. While many have lambasted his stance, the prince of poultry still has plenty of advocates — folks like ex-Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who even went so far as to declare today “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.” To find out what people were doing to commemorate this ridiculous “holiday”, we took to the streets and asked around.
Yesterday, North Carolina voters went to the polls and overwhelmingly approved an amendment to their state constitution banning same-sex marriage. To find out why, we took to the streets of the Tar Heel State and asked the people.
Yesterday, when a California appeals court struck down Proposition 8 — the state’s voter-approved ban on same sex marriage — anti-gay forces went ballistic, vowing to continue their fight to support “traditional marriage” Why can’t these knuckle-dragging troglodytes see the future that’s inevitably coming? After all, we did — way back in 2010, with an issue of Archie that foresaw the way things will eventually be — in California and beyond.
