    After DOMA, gay couples still would not receive many federal benefits. [W:345]

    After DOMA, gay couples still would not receive many federal benefits - First Read


    “The decision means that same-sex married couples will have access to some federal benefits, but will not have access to the full range of marriage benefits due to state marriage bans,” said Mark Daley, a spokesperson for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
    this is why the fall of DOMA will aid in getting equal rights nationalized.
    All its going to take now is some court cases here and there to pave the way.

    SO many scenarios can now push the issues and shine light on the fact this is inequality.

    The process will now be faster and soon all states will have to end their discrimination.

    If discrimination against a right was actually going on. It isn't.
    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.

    If gay marriage doesn't affect you at all, why do you care?

    Because it isn't marriage.

    Some courts. And to my knowledge they haven't agreed that Gay Marriage is a right, otherwise the Supreme Court would have ruled as such. To my knowledge, correct me if I am wrong, they didn't.

    There is equal rights, the people in states that voted and support SSM bans have every right to do so. SSM is not this over-hyped "equal rights" mantra that many want to push. It's a social issue that redefines legal marriage that people can support or not support and have those beliefs upheld in law.

    1.) yep which starts the path way to equality and ending discrimination
    2.) they havent even discussed it, they only agree MARRIAGE is a right
    3.) false not how it works
    4.) correct the full issues has not been pushed to the supreme court only some states supreme courts where they did rule it violates rights and equality

    so like i said.

    the courts disagree with you and you are wrong

    So what you are saying is that you are alright with the tyranny of the majority even though it infringes on the freedom and liberty of others?

    Actually you agreed with me. I never said SOME courts disagree. But it is not the law of the land, just some leftist states.
