    There is a precedence?

    Reciprocity is not a constitutional rule but an interstate agreement and one that is not absolute. I don't see the constitutional issue with section 2 even though it seemed there was a clear constitutional issue with section 3.

    Yes, I've shown you, you just don't like it. If I were a fag I wouldn't like it either.

    Sure wish I could bet you everything you own on that. It's going to be quite a while before all 50 states have laws on their books changing the definition of marriage to incorporate any two people of legal age.

    but that just leaves me with one question

    what state rights will be trampled?
    They are just too dumb witted to realize that DOMA was a federal law that violated "state's rights," not to mention the Constitution. Not that states have or deserve any rights (see: civil war).

    I think it's covered under the Full faith and Credit clause.

    And I think when the Supreme Court evaluates this, as it no doubt will have to do, it will find in favor of states' rights that all states are not going to be held to accomodate the lowest common denominator of marriage law, i.e. that any single state can dictate marriage law for all 50. Just because Vermont decides that sisters and brothers should be allowed to marry does not mean that all 50 states must recognize as married any brother and sister that went to Vermont to be wed.

    You've shown that you don't understand them. I've shown you the accurate definitions. And you've shown that you refuse to learn the correct definitions. It's not my fault that you choose to remain ignorant of the accurate definitions of the words.
