Legally Wed by Mark Strasser
Book DescriptionThe author sets forth many legal and moral arguments for opposing the organized right-wing anti-gay anti-marriage campaign in the United States. The campaign, if successful, would mean couples would not know whether they are married or not as they cross state borders. Strasser criticizes the election-year federal anti-marriage law that created a caste-system of marriage in America to discriminate against lesbian and gay soon-to-be-weds. He analyzes all the arguments against same-sex marriage individually, concluding that none achieves legal credibility, and reviews the bars on marriage based on definition, procreation, custody and protection of children, and the debates centred on equal protection. Strasser also examines the recently passed Defense of Marriage Act, concluding that it may actually be unconstitutional. In a preface new to the paperback edition, he discusses developments in the legal battle over same-sex marriages in Hawaii. He anticipates the likely state- and nation-wide impact of the Hawaii Supreme Court's decision.

In the context of education, Church and State issues are of growing importance and appear to be increasingly divisive. This title examines the developing jurisprudence relating to religion in the schools beginning with Everson v Board of Education, where the US Supreme Court discussed the wall of separation between Church and State.
