    DOMA specifically applies to the federal government recognizing marriage and the ability for each state to not recognize same sex marriages that other states may authorize. It has nothing to do with rights at all. No rights are being denied to anyone by allowing two people of the same sex to marry.

    Now, DOMA is unconstitutional because it infringes upon the people's right to receive equal protection under the law when it comes to the federal government recognizing marriage. But again that would be those wanting to enter into/ be recognized as being in a legal same sex marriage that are having their rights infringed upon, not those on the other side.

    I wonder if you SSM supporters have noticed that the only states that support SSM are blue ones and that you are running out of them.

    LOL....is that your new talking point NP? Of course the blue states will be the first ones (and those are the ones that people actually live in)....but after those, the red ones will come into the light as well. This is the beginning of the end for people of your ilk NP.

    Yeah....riiiiiight. You said the same thing about the military and "Don't ask Dont tell"....and then as soon as they ended the ban....you still we ranting about gays in the military. The same is true here. The SCOTUS will strike down bans on gay marriage and you will be one of the last bigots out there crying "activist court" and all the other BS you have in your arsensal to complain. Because thats what you people always do.

    I wonder if you've noticed that there are plenty of people in those red states even, let alone the swing states, that support same sex marriage. In fact, many of the younger people in those red states support same sex marriage. Once those old guys/gals die off, the younger generation will vote to allow same sex marriage. But more likely before then, the SCOTUS will strike down those same sex marriage restrictions.

    Navy Pride is notorious for moving the goalposts. He'll say "let the people decide" until they decide, then its "let the courts decide" and then they do...and then its "The legislature should decide".
