"Permission to Publish? In the United States of America? Yep, land of the free and home of the First Amendment--as if some bureaucrat at UA-F could overrule the Constitution of the United States ...." Hmmmmm???

Interesting how Greenberg recognizes that the US Constitution's 1st Amendment's guarantee of free speech and freedom of the press cannot easily be overruled and therefore defends the US Constitution vigorously. But he fails to similarly recognize that the US Constitution's 14th Amendment's guarantee of equality under the law cannot easily be overruled, not even by the Arkansas legislature nor by any vote of the people. Instead, he strains and contorts to muster lingual gymnastics that tiptoe almost ashamedly all around the periphery of marriage equality, making all kinds of irrelevant religious and traditional excuses for perpetuating legalized discrimination, and never really confronting and coming to terms with the reality of the 14th Amendment and equality. How can Greenberg and the ADG not understand this basic tenet of the US Constitution, and defend the 14th Amendment as vigorously as they defend the 1st Amendment?
