The equal protection clause is not intended to provide “equality” among individuals or classes but only “equal application” of the laws. The result, therefore, of a law is not relevant so long as there is no discrimination in its application. By denying states the ability to discriminate, the equal protection clause of the Constitution is crucial to the protection of civil rights.
What this essentially means is that states don’t have the authority to discriminate, which is what was being done. Re: ‘Max’ (Metro, June 26-28) It’s really a sad day in this country when Matt Prigge cannot give a review of a movie without bashing the red states (especially Texas), the Bible Belt and patriotic movies. What’s wrong, Matt — because these people don’t think the same way as you do, they are outcasts? FYI, there are people in THIS state and EVERY state who are God-fearing, flag-waving patriots who don’t follow along like a bunch of sheep. Wake up — or more importantly, grow up.
