    I don't think I understand what the SCOTUS has to do with this. Several states have successfully passed gay marriage laws already.

    I think you missed my initial point, which was to your comment as to the relative importance of SSM.

    Actually they are not. If DOMA is overturned those states will have to, by law, recognize SSM performed in other states. At that point it is all over for those against SSM.

    This is not true and has not been since the first state legalized SSM. SSM marriages are treated differently in this country.

    scotus is conservative, so if they so chose they could strike down any laws legalizing gay marriage.

    No they could not. The SCOTUS has to work with in the frame work in the US Constitution. And there is nothing in there there about State's expanding and or limiting marriage laws. And if precedence has weight Loving vs Virginia will come into consideration.

    You disagree with Loving vs Virginia?
