“I am confirming today that, for purposes of federal law, these marriages will be recognized as lawful and considered eligible for all relevant federal benefits on the same terms as other same-sex marriages,” Mr. Holder said in the video. “These families should not be asked to endure uncertainty regarding their status as the litigation unfolds.”

The bigots like to make out this is all about their right not to see boys kissing, and meanwhile it’s really about your driver’s licenses and who gets to make decisions for you if you’re incapacitated and all the really inconvenient paperwork-y shit that happens when you make a major life change. All of which affects the bigots not one little bit, not that they can process that.
