DOMA is dead.

And, technicalities aside, Prop 8. in California is dead paving the way for same-sex marriage there.

While many people will try to dissect these opinions and look for legal silver linings based on the narrowness of this or that part of rulings, make no mistake, as a practical matter marriage as we knew it is over. The dam has burst even if all the water has not yet traversed the breach.

But Marriage has never been the real target.  Read my post at the NC Register to understand why the real target is the Church.
