From Joe My God - OKLAHOMA: Gov Denies National Guard Spousal Benefits To ALL Married Couples


"GOP Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin today announced that ALL married couples, including straight ones, will be denied marriage benefits at the state's National Guard bases."
Here is a bit of what she said:
"Oklahoma law is clear. The state of Oklahoma does not recognize same-sex marriages, nor does it confer marriage benefits to same-sex couples. The decision reached today allows the National Guard to obey Oklahoma law without violating federal rules or policies. It protects the integrity of our state constitution and sends a message to the federal government that they cannot simply ignore our laws or the will of the people." 
Asshole. So that adds Oklahoma to the short list of ass-basket states, along with Texas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and possibly West Virginia (???) , that would rather make a political statement in regards to same-sex marriage benefits to our soldiers than do what is right and oh... law.
