Adam J. MacLeod at Public Discourse: “In particular, his expressed interest in fatherhood is difficult to reconcile with his administration’s attack on fatherhood during the last term of the Supreme Court of the United States.

When the court ruled, he initially promised to follow its decision, while also seeking a state constitutional amendment to overturn it. But soon he devoted his attention to trying to block the ruling.
