eventually the discrimination will fail, all it is gonna take is some court cases and pushing the issue
for example if im married to my wife in PA and we are granted all the state and federal rights but then she is traveling in SC and gets in a car accident is it right for them not to notify me to make medical decesions if that state does recognize my marriage?
what if she dies? can they just not tell me since they dont see us as married?
of if i go there to i not have visitation rights since in that state we arent married?
etc etc etc
it will be cases like these and 1000 other possibilities that will end stat discrimination and it will be even easier with the fall of DOMA.
Granting equal rights is coming soon, it may not be around the corner but ending doma and granting federal rights is the foundation and launching pad. When its pushed the courts will have trouble ruling any other way.
2.) no because what you are saying wasnt being heard (states right to discriminate)
3.) good for you, it needed struck down
4.) but it s simply not and once pushed it will fail as a state issue and this is already slowly happening when this specific issue is pushed to the courts
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
With a democracy the political minority looses, that's just how it works. In a Republic the states have rights.
