I'm against the pendulum being swung all the way to the right, but I'm against it being swung all the way to the left even more - and I envision this to happen in the not-too-distant future. I am perfectly happy with how it is right now, minus my whole "down with all marriage" viewpoint which will never see the light of day on an American political level.
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.
This is good. DOMA prevents legally wed people in states that legalize SSM to receive federal benefits.
From my understanding nothing was done with Prop 8 because evidently they didn't have the legal push to represent it (Cali afterall refused to represent their people leaving it to others). The lower court ruling will stand for Cali and only California. It's still a state issue, more so now that DOMA is gone.
