    Marriange, as a legal institution, necessitates involvment of the state, at every level.

    Yes, morally my friend, because we are now one step closer to everyone being seen as equal under the law.

    Correct.
    This ruling does nothing in regard to state laws/constitutions.

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

    1) It's hardly arbitrary. There's a moral issue at stake.

    2) The point of allowing courts to declare a law unconstitutional is because legislatures sometimes do things that are unconstitutional.

    I think striking it down was the right thing to do.

    Just like Heller.

    Of course, we won't hear anythiong about that from the left.
    I think it's obviously unconstitutional. It attempts to amend the Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution without going through the amendment process.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I'll have to check, but I don't think not being able to get married was stopping many gays from having sex.
