Oklahoma denying all National Guards spousal benefits to avoid order on same-sex couple benefits

Oklahoma has stopped processing spousal benefits for everyone, apparently figuring it doesn't count as discrimination if you treat everyone equally badly in order to be allowed to treat some people badly.

Oklahoma denying all National Guards spousal benefits to avoid orde...

Let me think, discrimination against all spousal benefits for everyone means Oklahoma does not discriminate against spouses?

"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."

~ Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin

Oh, can't you just see the long lines in Oklahoma of people rushing to join the Oklahoma National Guard?
