    What a crock of ****....

    If you feel that way then call your representative and demand he/she attempt to amend the constitution....

    Not that either progressives or republicans even care in the Beltway - they only care about issues they can pander to and that will keep them in power and gay marriage isn't one of those issues. Hell the stupid idea couldn't even pass in progressive California.

    You know who is discriminated against consistently and its absolutely politically correct to do so?? straight white male Christians - they're the punching bag of society...
    And hopefully, with another SCOTUS case that we are supposed to get a ruling on with those same sex marriage cases, those laws that use race in college admission will be struck down as well.

    Most likely though it will be struck down.

    It took almost a hundred years for interracial marriage bans to come up to the SCOTUS for the second time to get those laws overturned. Getting things overturned as unconstitutional takes time, especially when it comes to something like same sex marriage, which for our country, is a new concept, even if it isn't right that it never existed before in our country.
    Do you know the difference between DOMA and "Jim Crow Laws?"

    WOW, 1 out of 50 states took DOMA to the dome and exercised their Tenth Amendment rights.
    Oh, very good. Now, go back and look at what I typed. It says that they are unable to enter into legal marriages. That is still unconstitutional.

    So you think equal protection means one set of rules for some and another for others?

Now, I don't approve of Muslims that would try to place their religious rules into our laws, but I haven't seen any Muslims try to actively do this. Most of that in this country is being done by Christians.
    I suppose you could point out these laws based on Christian decree?

    Are you forced to be Christian?

    Can't wait, hopefully it will be good news. Gonna try and distract myself till then, thankfully I just got The Last of Us, so that will keep me occupied for a while. Think the GF will be coming over so we can find out together, hopefully we'll be drinking in celebration.

    So what? It doesn't matter they are based on the same concept, keeping a group of people from doing something lawfully because you disapprove of those people/feel those people are less deserving than you because of a characteristic that has nothing to do with furthering a state interest, and everything to do with simply disapproval.

    The problem is that DOMA has yet to be ruled unconstitutional.
