  1. Apparently Kenneth Starr, believes the 18,000 marriages were not void ab initio. Lesbians and gays are “a suspect class.” Good reasons why George et al the “wise four” to in essence sustain their original opinion. Even Starr was conceding a world of judical nihilism in arguing that these once valid marriages would have to now rely on the protection of the “putative spouse doctrine.” It is amazing to hear that an admittedly suspect class can find protection in the latest “separate but equal” quick fix. You can just see both the interminable and quixotic world of juris prudence to rise from this ersatz approach. Ironic is the fact that this very Court, expressly refused requests to stay the performance of the eventual 18,000 marriages.

    The most laughable and buffoonish aspect of all this was to hear a Roman Catholic Archbishop preaching morality.
