Walker Should Defend "Registry" Law

Malor at AOSHQ has a long-ish post on the question of 'whether to defend Wisconsin's registry law.'

I agree with Malor. First off, it's not immediately obvious that the registry law is "substantially similar" to marriage. Secondly, it's the law, even though it's hard to imagine a more misguided and un-serious Legislature and Governor (the (D) bunch and Doylet) who could enact it.

Finally, and most serious: the precedent is dangerous. Obama was wrong to dump DOMA defense, and Walker should not be playing tit-for-tat with rule-of-law questions. Rule-of-law is in enough trouble.

Wow. Advocating a position based on principle rather than on emotion, desired outcome, or immediate political advantage - what a strange and novel concept.

Who let you guys near a keyboard?

But, yeah, let's not sink as low as our President.

Well, John, if you read Dad29's "simple prayer" post, apparently the deranged anony is taking that advice.

The Christians I know would be up in arms about such comments. Apparently, some who claim to be bound by the tenets of the good book are...hypocrites. Sobering, indeed.
