    The case against Prop 8 is most likely headed towards the high court.

    That has nothing to do with this law.

    But it could very well effect SSM laws as a whole, and lead to a ruling like Loving v Virginia where SSM would be legal in all 50 states. Also DOMA will likely make it to the court eventually.

    The NY law can't be challenged because it does not harm anyone. No court would even entertain a case against it.

    First of all, I was not alive when that happened. I was born in 1980.

    Second of all, I am pro-life. Maybe you shouldn't assume what I believe on all issues just from how I feel about this one issue.

    I know several Roman Catholics who do not have a problem with legal same sex marriage, as long as they do not have to allow them to get married in their church. Many Roman Catholics can see the difference between legal marriage and the religious institution of marriage.

    My mother's family is Roman Catholic. All of my mother's immediate family is quite fine with gays getting married. In fact, they would much rather have a gay person legally marry someone they are in love with rather than someone of the opposite sex, that they are likely to cause a broken home from the lying to either theirself, their spouse, or both about their attractions.

    Why do you judge people so much by what they are, instead of who they are. Gays, Roman Catholics...

    Don't take NP too seriously. He's either what he says -- a crusty old dude -- or he's a left-leaning 20-something college grad who trolls in his free time.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    That would be a religious ruling, a piece of theocracy, not a rule by the rights and liberties of the individual which is their charge. If the courts cannot do as they are demanded they do, then they should be removed.
