The Lyrics

Indiana and Wisconsin cases are pending in the Seventh Circuit court. Most observers who attended the three member panel hearing came away with the impression that the gay marriage bans in those two states will be struck down. I thought I'd celebrate a little early with a song.
"Fairy" Indiana,
Massachusetts, Pennsylvania,
California, Minnesota,
Delaware--

Oregon, New Jersey,
Maine, New Mexico, Hawaii, Illinois,
Wisconsin, Iowa, see you there!

Gays in Washington, New Hampshire and old Rhode Island,
In Connecticut, New York and Vermont are smilin',
And in Maryland gay couples are busy filin'--
Twenty-one great states
Where gay rights are great!

Not Louisiana,
Nor Montana,
Neither Carolina,
Michigan, Missouri, Idaho...

But "Fairy" Indiana
And the other ones I mentioned
Are the states where
Our rights don't blow!

If you'd like a way to consummate your connection--
And to formalize the status of your affection--
Through the courts or legislation or state elections--
Twenty-one great states
That I just can't hate!

Not in Alabama, Arizona,
Colorado, South Dakota,
Tennessee and oodles more!

Just "Fairy" Indiana,
Also twenty other states
Allow gay marriage,
But who keeps score?

I have no quarrel with a referendum or a vote by the state legislature, but law making by the judiciary is a dangerous trend that has and will continue to create more havoc than simply waiting a few more years for the public to accept same sex unions.

Thank you for your comment, Patrick. I can see how you would prefer to hear the voices of the people through the ballot box or through elected representatives. My feeling is that the circuit courts are simply doing what they are designed to do--what the Constitution says they are supposed to do--which is to defend the rights of all Americans, even those who might lose at the ballot box or in state legislatures. Gay couples have the basic right to sue for redress when they feel that they are being discriminated against. Justices may agree or disagree, but until the Supreme Court decides that marriage is a right available to all Americans, or that this is a state by state issue, we will see the battles unfold at the circuit court level.

A Utah judge has just upheld the right of polygamists in that state. Even in societies where same-sex relationships were common, I don't believe they were ever considered as "marriages". Polygamy has a much longer history. With the increasing number of Muslims in the United States, along with the ultra-conservative Mormons, I can see this being an issue for which there is no secular barrier that the courts could invoke. Another way to look at the issue: why do homosexuals want to bring the government into their relationships? Why did heterosexuals ever accede to that? It is one thing for a pair of believers to bring God along as a partner to their union, but a state? Of course, a lot of couples are choosing to forgo licensing these days.

Freedom wins again: from the decision striking down laws which banned gay marriage in Wisconsin and Indiana: The unanimous, 40-page decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago blasted the states' justifications for their bans, several times singling out the argument that only marriage between a man and a woman should be allowed because it is — simply — tradition. There are "bad traditions that are historical realities such as cannibalism, foot-binding, and suttee, and traditions that ... are neither good nor bad — such as trick-or-treating on Halloween," the ruling says. "Tradition per se therefore cannot be a lawful ground for discrimination — regardless of the age of the tradition."
