    Those would be two that haven't gone down yet. Over the last century, we have been doing a good job of clearing our laws of religious bias. There is some that still remains, but the fact that those laws have been cleaned out does not mean that Christians are now being oppressed. They are simply being relegated to the same level of citizenship as everyone else, instead of trying to feel superior to those who don't believe in the Bible.

    I just do not see how DOMA is constitutional as far as federal benefits since marriage is the rhelm of state law

    Yeah they do matter considering one falls under the Tenth Amendment and the other falls under the federal government in which both contradict under the Fourteenth Amendment...

    You do realize Jim Crow Laws blatantly violated the Bill of Rights? In order for one to understand that one must understand the legal ideas behind such laws and the precedent that followed....

    I have no desire to write you a thesis or even a summery on such laws.... If you're this motivated to figure out "equality" via legal definition then you research......

    I'm done in here. I have more interesting things on my mind than marriage...

    I just hope next time "because its no fair because the Equal Protection Clause" is not used as an argument because no on here has applied ANY SCOTUS ruling correctly thus far.... Which is why gay marriage isn't legal.

    They both fall under the rights of people of the US to be treated equally under the law.

    The legal definition of marriage hasn't been enough, apparently. DOMA was just a security measure that shouldn't have been necessary in the first place. Some activists need to be told at least twice, I guess.

    First of all this is about the couple's sex, not their preferences. This is not about gays, its about all kinds of people choosing to marry someone of the same-sex. They could be into BSDM and I don't care because I'm not in their bedroom. However you want to stimulate your orafises, whatever, it's just a preference.

    Second, your claim has never been true. Not ever. If people love and/or "are atracted to" someone who's already married, or a close blood relative, to bad. heteros don't get to marry just whomever heteros want, so there's no precident for someone with a diferent preference or fetish to marry just whomever they want either.

    Gays just want to be a "protected class" and have MORE rights than anyone else..

    I find anyone who believes the government should protect them from scrutiny to be obnoxious..
    You sound more like a right-wing Republican than you do a Libertarian.

    Now just trying to side step the point. You can do better.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
