    You can't be that old

    And I could see them voting in favor of it based on conservatives principals, like getting the government out of the peoples business.

    The decisions on DOMA out of Massachusetts where designed with a conservative viewpoint in mind. States rights is a very important viewpoint of conservative judges, and the DOMA case rides on states rights as an issue. The federal government cannot say it will not recognize a contract the states have a right to enact.

    religion can basically discriminate against anyone on anything on RELIGIOUS matters and tahts according to the constitution.

    WHen people act like this right is in jeopardy its just a deflection to act like theres a real reason to not give equal rights to gays.

    I really think #1 should be handled legislatively granting private sector employers the freedom to discriminate.
    this is insane and goes against everything american.

    what happens if all the employers in a state decide they don't want to hire Jews?

    are Jews supposed to just die?

    nonsense. rights that everyone agrees with doesn't need protection. The ones most in need of our protection are the controversial ones. This is a distinctly American concept.
