    I disagree. It's an example of the country moving in a more positive direction. It's not the whole thing... nor did I say it was.

    And I don't buy into the whole "the economy is falling, the economy is falling" stuff, turtle. I think you know that. The economy may not be booming, but it's not ready for the trash compacter either. Not even close.

    And this gives MORE credibility to SCOTUS recognizing it... something that I predict will occur, regardless.

    So how does it feel to know that the tide has turned and more and more gays are going to be getting married? Just think, it could be 2013 when SCOTUS rules DOMA illegal. You could live to see a gay wave in this country!
    I'm predicting that is when NP dies from a massive stroke.

    you ought to stick to supporting gay marriage rather than pretending to be a psychologist. Real constitutional rights are more important than ones that may or may not be recognized by the Ninth and may or may not apply to the states via the 14th

    SO basically you think your opinion is more important than others. Somehow I disagree.

    Actually this brings up a good point I want to make.

    It's partly about giving LGBT folks equal rights, but maybe more importantly, it's about facilitating a change in the perception of Americans. It's about encouraging people to view more and more people as equal and leave prejudices behind. If we can get more states to legalize gay marriage, it helps Americans realize that this is the right path, that this is the morally correct path to equality.

    Simply giving gay people the same benefits without the same title is meaningless. Giving people the right to the same title sort of helps equalize the perception of marriage.

    EDIT: LOL does what I just typed make a lick of sense?

    And I don't buy into the whole "the economy is falling, the economy is falling" stuff, turtle. I think you know that. The economy may not be booming, but it's not ready for the trash compacter either. Not even close.
    the New Deal did not destroy the economy either just as smoking dozen cartons of cigarettes normally cause lung cancer alone. But what we see is an accentuation of the problems that will ultimately destroy the economy. Each time you smoke another carton you get closer to the critical mass that starts the malignancy.

    I realize those who see social freedom-abortion, the repeal of anti sodomy laws, and gay marriage-as extremely important may vote for a candidate that supports these things EVEN if they understand that his economic policies and judicial picks hasten the destruction. What is silly are those who vote dem on abortion or gay rights pretend that the stuff they don't care about is important to their choices
