Reservations on "Gay Marriage"

In "Brave New World," the reservations were portrayed as "backwards" places which were not under the same impositions as the rest of the world. This was in part because Huxley disliked Christianity (to put it mildly), which remained on the reservations.

Wonder of wonders, Christianity is still practiced in some form by many Native Americans on their reservations today. One consequence of this is that these reservations--which are technically sovereign and thus do not have to follow the laws invented and imposed by the US government (including the Supreme Court)--maintain that marriage is between one man and one woman. The nine largest tribes all observe this law.
