The Unintended Consequences of the DOMA Ruling for Christian Missionaries

According to Justice Kennedy, Ancient Sparta defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman simply to re-inforce particularly Judeo-Christian values and to demean, degrade, and humiliate homosexuals. According to Justice Kennedy Bertrand Russell was just as much a spiteful Bible-Thumping know-nothing bigot as, say, Fred Phelps or Anita Bryant. According to Justice Kennedy, the Hindus are really Christians. Well, according to me, Justice Kennedy is a twit demonstrably ignorant of history and an asshole who substitutes outright slander for legal argument. But, alas, I am not a Supreme Court Justice.

But if Kennedy is right, and I am horribly mistaken (and I probably am for after all I am an irrational bigot), then the DOMA ruling will save Christian missionaries a lot of trouble: They will no longer have to evangelize in India, China, or in any of the Muslim Countries anymore for according to Justice Kennedy, almost everyone there--even though he may think he is a Muslim, Hindu, or Communist Atheist--is already a Christian just for thinking marriage is the erotic union of a man and a woman. Kennedy makes Rahner look like a piker.
