GS is not happy:
My mind and heart would not let me believe it. You have probably already seen this:
I hate to admit that you were right.
Actually, I’m against federal involvement in marriage too, so I’m not sure what GS thinks I’m right about unless he was still under the illusion that George Delano either was a conservative or actually gave a damn about them. I have no problem with this action, but I can certainly see where it is a stunning slap in the face to social conservatives who saw George as their last bastion of hope against the moral libertines.
Nevertheless, I’d encourage GS to console himself with the reminder that government doesn’t solve problems of moral debauchery. It solves very few problems of any kind. Far more often, it creates them.
