    I disagree. I think government should get their hands out of marriage altogether.

    Not gonna happen.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Here's my prediction/paraphrase of Scalia's dissent: "Big government bad, unless, of course, it's to keep them pesky fags in their place."

    But marriage, for the purpose of this conversation, is essentially a government classification.

    I don't care if a legislature chooses to change that classification but I see no reason for the courts to arbitrarily change it.

    Re: DOMA unconstitutional. 5-4 decision.

    Only the part of DOMA that requires the federal government to treat same-sex marriages different from any other marriage is struck down. States are still not required to honor marriage from any other state and they are still not required to change the definition of marriage to include any two people of any sex.

    It was the right decision. If a state like Connecticut agrees that two homosexuals can be a married couple and allow such marriages, the federal government really must treat that marriage the same as any other marriage in that state.

    Constitutionally, it's not a Federal prerogative anyway.


    Bet we won't hear anything about that from the right.

    Just like Heller.

    Of course, we won't hear anythiong about that from the left.
    Clarification: Only part of DOMA has been struck down. In the 11 states that recognize same-sex marriage, it will no longer apply. The example offered by Judge Napolitano on Fox just now was that if you marry in New York but move to Texas, Texas is free not to recognize your marriage...but the federal government no longer is.

    Hey maybe now a Soldier's husband or wife will get the same benefits as another Soldier's husband and wife.
