Yet Another Reason To Like Same Sex Marriage

The terrorists hate it. Khalid Sheik Mohammed, one of the higher-level prisoners in Guantanamo Bay (and one of the guys who it looks like we really should find a way to hold on to forever) again made things difficult for the military court trying the many cases against him:

At his arraignment here Thursday, the alleged 9/11 mastermind said he would not accept any attorney, even a fellow Muslim, “who is sworn to your American constitution.” Displaying a surprising understanding of such concepts as federalism and dual sovereignty, Mohammed referenced recent decisions by state courts in California and Massachusetts under the powers reserved to them under the Tenth Amendment.

“I consider all American constitution” evil, he said, because it permits “same-sexual marriage and many other things that are very bad,” he told the military judge, Col. Ralph Kohlmann. “Do you understand?”
So you see, if you reject same-sex marriage, you're helping the terrorists win. Hat tip to Matt Yglesias.

And I think we should like Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Mormons, Shintoists, and Wiccans, too!
