A federal district court judge in Boston today struck down the 1996 federal law that defines marriage as a union exclusively between a man and a woman.
Judge Joseph L. Tauro ruled that the federal Defense of Marriage law violates the Constitutional right of married same-sex couples to equal protection under the law and upends the federal government’s long history of allowing states to set their own marriage laws.
Gee. The 10th Amendment prevails!!
Unless, of course, your State did not allow abortions pre-Roe. Or homosex sodomy.
Because, it's clear, the Constitution emanates and penumbrates a "right to privacy." Or "Gun Control" (although in this case, the LeftOWackies were caught between the 2nd + 14th and their sudden interest in the 10th.)
So: which 10th Amendment is operative?
