The State of South Dakota expects same-sex married folks to participate in civil society with all the responsibilities that go with that participation. Considering that, where does the State of South Dakota get off denying them the privilege of calling themselves married? Seems like Jackley should realize that if we expect these folks to bear the same burden of responsibilities as everyone else that we should give them the same status as other married couples, not regard them as a separate class of citizens. Fair's fair, and Jackley's notion that South Dakota should be able to segregate in any way, shape, or form the very citizens it treats equally in every other respect is full of baloney.
Jackley may well have his personal and political imperatives in mind while publicly hand-wringing over the SCOTUS decision, but the reality is that the law of the land now relieves him of the burdens of dealing with the contentiousness of same-sex marriage considerations within the the State of South Dakota. For that we should all be glad because it frees up our AG's time and energy to take up matters of real import in the pursuit of justice in this state.
