    There's a process for that.

    This isn't an issue of discrimination, it's an issue of the definition of marriage. Until just a few years ago, nobody thought this was in dispute.

    I believe in equal rights, and I am reasonably sure the constitution supports that.

    Second class citizen?

    Yeah, I would be upset too if the court made me a second class citizen said my beliefs and vote do not count because it ticks off homosexuals and their supporters with their emotional and warped mantra of "equal rights." Hopefully the SCOTUS will make the right decision and let the states decide marriage for themselves and overturn DOMA under those grounds as well.

    It's astounding how democrats use the Equal Protection Clause in an attempt to create protected classes, yet will turn right around and claim illegal aliens have civil liberties which blatantly contradicts the Equal Protection Clause...

    Wrong. You are free to define marriage for yourself, but not for others. Not allowing a group the same ability to marry who they love, without justification (so no red herrings like pedophilia or marrying a pet).

    OK, but my question is WHEN did the previously well-understood definition of marriage transmorgify itself into unconstitutional discrimination.
