    Read what the majority opinion said

    DOMA singles out class of persons deemed by State entitled to recognition and protection to enhance their own liberty'...

    The Constitution's guarantee of equality 'must at the very least mean that a bare con- gressional desire to harm a politically unpopular group cannot' justify disparate treatment of that group
    Where does the court claim this only applies to gay people?

    A federal law that forced states to perform SSM would be unconstitutional. Now, it is possible that the courts will eventually find that banning SSM is a violation of equal protection, but that is somewhat different.

    Next time around, you can swap "federal" and "states". The next step is for Washington to trample a state's rights to not allow for SSM. The federal government has no idea how to not go into overkill.

    As I said before, I am perfectly fine as long as this is it. This. Is. It. I just have no faith in D.C. in stopping here and letting 50 states determine what is best for them.

    Then we get to have the whole "equal rights" and "full faith and credit" crap being thrown against the faces of red states.

    By the fact that it refers to that it cannot be the single justification by singling a group out. That is not the same thing as saying there can be no justification for any restrictions.

    Your paranoid fantasies are interesting, but more appropriate to the conspiracy theory section of the board.

    You don't think other groups whose identities are defined by their sexual behaviors are not going to run with this precedent? Really?
