A recent Montana Supreme Court decision to force Montana Universities to offer health insurance to gay and lesbian employees' partners is bound to set off the extreme and religious right on attack mode. Just wait for it.
The majority in the 4-to-3 decision said the decision had nothing to do with the rights of gay couples to marry. But a dissenting judge criticized his colleagues as "radically altering common law marriage in Montana."
Any move forward toward any kind of humanity will inevitably lead to a massive right-wing back lash. And given the current misadministration in Washington, how long before the zealots and so called moral prosecutors begin the attack?
