    The answer is pretty much: It ALWAYS was....but it wasn't recognized as such until enough people cared.

Hopefully the SCOTUS will make the right decision and let the states decide marriage for themselves and overturn DOMA under those grounds as well.
    That's exactly what how those who opposed inter-racial marriage felt.

    Should states be able to restrict all marriages to whatever they see fit Digs?

That would just be plain silly....and the exact reason why states should not be able to make their own laws regarding a right as fundamental as the right to marry.

    Would you be ok with states saying that they wouldn't recognize inter-racial marriages? Afterall...you believe states should have the right to set their own marriage criteria. What if a state said only fertile couples should be allowed to marry....or if a state said marriage should be restricted to Christians.....ok with you?

    I support legalising SSM federaly and forcing every state to comply. I hope SCOTUS rules in this way.

    However, it has nothing to do with sex preferences or any of that bull**** for 2 reasons: 1. Its not the state's job to endorse your benign sexual desires with liceces. Infact its a violation of your 4th amendment right. 2. The state's sole justification in brieching your 4th amendment when it regulates marriage, is the state's "compelling interest" in the raising of children (which same-sex couples can do as well as opposit-sex couples) and in promoting long-term stable relationships.

    That's it. The more stable and helthy a given kind of relationship, the more the state should support it. The less stable, the less the state should support it, regardles of who or what composes the relationship.

    Noone can marry just whomever they want to now, and noone will be able to after SSM is legalised.

    Has nothing to do with equality or sex preferences or any of that libtard crap.

    I don't know many Libertarians that favor big government telling people what they can and cannot do in their private lives. Most Libertarians that I know prefer government to stay pretty much out of everything. This guy is advocating for big government making the most intimate decisions for private individuals. THAT is much more right-wing Republican than it is Libertarian.

    Getting married at all is putting more government in your life than single people. If anything you should be calling all married libertarians hypocrits.

    I was right, you have no clue.

    Laws don't care how you feel.... Laws don't have emotions - especially non-existing laws and especially those laws that do not exist..

    Not really. But I do like how you focus on one aspect and completely disregard all the others in an attempt to make your point. Fail.
