Joe Biden has granted asylum to gay unions from the Supreme Court.
For women, it’s too late. By running on abortion rights, the US Supreme Court has pawned off the US president this summer. Pulling the rug from under Joe Biden’s feet a second time is out of the question. To avoid a new unraveling, Democrats have rushed to pass legislation protecting same-sex marriage. A record since 2015 has been shoved down the throats of the religious right and fundamentalists at the highest power in the country.
The text signed on Tuesday – played in full to Lady Gaga’s hit “Born This Way” – repeals the previous law that defined marriage as between a man and a woman. It also prohibits civil registrars from discriminating against couples “on grounds of sex, race, ethnicity or origin”. The law was “a blow to hate in all its forms,” hammered the boss of the place, and the White House lit up in rainbow colors.

So sad, defenders of the Constitution have decided to reignite the most divisive debate in Uncle Sam’s country in recent days. Should certain American merchants be given the right not to serve LGBT customers in the name of their religious principles? Five years after agreeing with a Christian pastry chef who didn’t want to make a wedding cake for a male couple, they now see an evangelical graphic designer who hesitates to create websites for gay couples.
The devout woman believes that Colorado’s anti-discrimination law violates her freedom of speech by requiring her to publish messages that contradict her beliefs. In 2018, the Court did not enact general principles on the matter. She might change her mind.
If necessary, a florist can refuse to provide bouquets for the burial of a gay man, alerting the defenders of minorities, who are worried about the many excesses that such a decision may entail. But for now, let’s hope, Joe Biden saved gay marriage. No offense to those who are offended, but if you temporarily replace the cake with a fruit salad, the party will be no less.
