    Deja vu. This is no different than when you said that you would be fine with repeal of DADT if the soldiers were okay with it and later if the military leadership was okay with it. Once it became apparent that an overwhelming majority of soldiers and the military leadership did not care and believed it would have no impact on the military you moved the goal posts again. The reality is that you are lying to yourself NP. SCOTUS could strike down every state constitutional ban on same sex marriage and the federal government could repeal DOMA and it would still not be "good enough" for you. You don't oppose same sex marriage because you think it is harmful, you do it because you personally find homosexuality to be disgusting and repulsive. Stop with the lying and just be honest and open with yourself.

    Sorry brother. I don't agree. You can't care about the plight of every single person in the world. It's impossible. The attitude that a person, group of people, or a nation should care about every single injustice in the world is what got the United States into the state it's in. We can only spread so far. To be clear, by care I mean something that you feel you need to take action on. Does it bug me that gay people can't marry? Yes, from a freedom stand point it does. Do I care enough to go march in a parade or write letters to Congressmen about it? No, I don't.

    I guess you think that is a cute or clever question.

    Each state defines what level of relationship is allowed to marry. In some states, cousins can. Others they cannot. One, if I remember correctly, allows marrying a 1st cousin, but not a 3rd degree cousin.

    I don't believe any state allows marrying a biological parent or biological sibling.

    That has got to be the most nauseating avatar anyone could have posted. That is part of the disgusting pathology.

    In order for this to even be challenged, the person challenging it would have to be able to show that their rights are being denied in some way by the law itself. No one can say this when it comes to same sex marriage being legal. There would be no basis for the suit. The same reason is why we havent seen a lawsuit to challenge the Loving decision. No one can legitimately show how opening up marriage to more people could legitimately infringe any of your rights.

    You don't have to parade. You just have to vote for civil rights, and not hold bigotry in your heart.

    So then we agree that the slippery slope argument is bull, right?

    Don't all states fall under DOMA?
