Nebraska Marriage Amendment Unconstitutional

I expect this to happen in Missouri eventually:

A federal district court judge struck down Nebraska???s marriage amendment on Thursday – ruling that the amendment was unconstitutional. Pro-family groups say this decision will spur the movement for a federal marriage amendment.

Nebraska voters passed a state constitutional amendment in 2000, defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman. The amendment also prohibited other same-sex unions, including civil unions and domestic partnerships.

When one federal judge can overturn a state constitution with the smack of his gavel, states’ rights don’t mean diddly in the U.S. anymore.
