    Court: Heart of gay marriage law unconstitutional

    Court: Heart of gay marriage law unconstitutional - Yahoo! News

    A federal appeals court Thursday declared that the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutionally denies federal benefits to married gay couples, a ruling all but certain to wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
    In its unanimous ruling, the three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston said the 1996 law that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman discriminates against gay couples because it doesn't give them the same rights and privileges as heterosexual couples.


    The court didn't rule on the law's other politically combustible provision, which said states without same-sex marriage cannot be forced to recognize gay unions performed in states where it's legal. It also wasn't asked to address whether gay couples have a constitutional right to marry.

    I'm guessing that last clause will go down also, it seems to be in violation of the Full Faith and Credit clause of the constitution.

    Glad to see some more movement on this.

    Then maybe it's time to scrap the old Constitution and write one where the invocation of MORALITY as the highest Legal determinator is more clearly defined.

    You know what I find interesting..... The fact that I can willingly claim that a new Constitution would be a good idea to support my viewpoint on this issue, but you folks on the left are still unwilling to indicate that much of your legislative and philosophical agenda should require at least a Constitutional Amendment to make legitimate.

    damn i should move this to my sig. You want to scrap the constitution? Are you serious? After so many conservatives (yourself included i believe) have bashed on Obama claiming things he has done are unconstitutional and should not be tolerated and blah blah blah. And now you want to scrap the constitution? the same thing you bash on him for supposedly wanting to do.

    OK, so let me see if I have this right. If the folks on the left stuck their heads in a bucket of manure, you would do the same, just because they did it? OK, whatever floats your boat.

    And of course,you get to dictate MORALITY for everybody.

    What criteria should we use to determine this "MORALITY"?
    Seems to me more and more people don't seem to have a problem with gays.
