A federal judge has struck down the last state ban on gay adoption in Mississippi:
“It’s now legal for couples in all U.S. states to adopt children — regardless of the couple’s gender — after a federal judge struck down Mississippi’s ban on same-sex adoption late Thursday.
Overturning a law that had stood since 2000, U.S. District Court Judge Daniel P. Jordan III said the ban violated the U.S. Constitution’s equal protection clause. Mississippi’s ban was the last of its kind in the U.S.
“I’m a happy camper. Our clients are beyond happy campers. They are more than thrilled,” the plaintiffs’ lead attorney, Roberta Kaplan, tells Mississippi Today.
The lawsuit challenging the law was filed back in 2015 by four same-sex couples; it’s also backed by two advocacy groups, the Campaign for Southern Equality and the Family Equality Council. …”
This story symbolizes the collapse of TruConservatism.
At this point, why should anyone believe TruConservatives are capable of conserving anything? Why should anyone respond to stale patriotic appeals to “consistent constitutional conservatism” … when the Constitution is manifestly incapable of restraining even the most radical social innovations?
