The religious-right ignorance is shared not only with Congress and its erroneous DOMA (1996), but with the US Supreme Court and its divine opinionator, Justice Kennedy; he holds self-appointed lordship respecting dignity and equality. Popular public opinion was formed not on fidelity, but on emotional response to the gay whine, “We’re in love and want to be married, too.” Civic morality—collaboration--might arrive at civil union for gay partners without subjugating the dignity and equality of children to have the heritage they own from an ovum and a spermatozoa and the fidelity due them from that androgynous pair, as directed by physics. People are free to rebuke physics, and when they do so, they must take responsibility for moving the envelope of civic morality—proving that their innovation conforms to civic morality.
