A while back, from the U.S. Supreme Court [pdf]:
SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
OBERGEFELL ET AL. v. HODGES, DIRECTOR, OHIO
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, ET AL.
CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SIXTH CIRCUIT
No. 14-556. Argued April 28, 2015-Decided June 26, 2015
….The Constitution, however, does not permit the State to bar same-sex couples from marriage on the same terms as accorded to couples of the opposite sex….
The Court, in this decision, holds same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry in all States. It follows that the Court also must hold-and it now does hold-that there is no lawful basis for a State to refuse to recognize a lawful same-sex marriage performed in another State on the ground of its same-sex character.
No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.
It is so ordered.
Evidently someone never got the message, can’t read, or something. A bill filed today by Representative Jeff Pogue (r):
Proposes a constitutional amendment clarifying that marriage is between a man and a woman and provides that any court case ruling otherwise is unauthoritative, void, and of no effect
Sponsor: Pogue, Jeff (143)
Proposed Effective Date: 8/28/2016
LR Number: 6346H.01I
Last Action: 03/15/2016 – Introduced and Read First Time (H)
Bill String: HJR 110
Next Hearing: Hearing not scheduled
Calendar: Bill currently not on a House calendar
“…and provides that any court case ruling otherwise is unauthoritative, void, and of no effect…”
Because the supremacy clause isn’t, right?
Ladies and gentlemen, your right wingnut controlled Missouri General Assembly doing what it does best.
