Constitutionality of Wisconsin’s domestic partnerships probed | Isthmus

    Isthmus: On the issue of severability, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson asked whether the law would be constitutional if the requirement that domestic partners be same-sex couples were struck down, along with the prohibition against close relatives forming such a partnership. “I believe it likely would be,” responded attorney Austin R. Nimocks, who is representing the plaintiffs in Appling v. Doyle. In other words, he argues that it would be legal for rights and benefits to be provided to domestic partner relationships as long as those partnerships are not sex-specific; they could include such domestic pairings as two sisters who live together. That way, says Nimocks, the status of legal marriage would be preserved. “The [same-sex] relationship in and of itself would not be marriage-like, and that is what is important to make things constitutional,” says Nimocks, an attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian nonprofit organization based in Scottsdale.

Ban on religious songs is fair for all | Daily Targum

    Daily Targum: Among the people that the school district apparently [expletive] off is Alliance Defending Freedom, which describes itself as a “legal ministry” — the only one of its kind in the country. The ADF wrote a letter to the school district alleging that their ban is unconstitutional and a violation of First Amendment rights. The letter continued to cite the right of students to have Christmas songs in schools. The ADF’s press release is headlined “NJ school district bans religious Christmas carols.” This intentional omission of the ban on other religion’s religious songs and the excessive attention on the celebration of Christmas rather than on all holidays reflects the problem that the Bordentown Regional School District is right in trying to resolve.
