To Have and To Hold Wrongly

Richard Cohen’s response to New York’s highest court’s decision upholding the ban on same sex marriage:

There are exactly 316 benefits of marriage. I learned that from the decision of New York's highest court upholding the ban on same-sex marriage, which means that the often-wed Elizabeth Taylor has enjoyed these benefits 2,528 times, while a lesbian could not have any of them, despite having a stable relationship and a child or two. If it pleases the court, your decision is just plain idiotic.

Read the whole article, it makes the rationale used by Judge Robert S. Smith, the judge who wrote the majority decision, look rather stupid.
