    Why is this so hard to understand: they are federal benefits, not state benefits.

    another day another failed thread by people against equality and who support discrimination. That was a fun read, its always fun to see those people lose their minds at that though of Americans being treated equally.

    I admit it, I laughed. But I felt bad about it afterwords. Laughing at conservatives is like laughing at the special Olympics.

    I kinda got a kick out of it as well, especially when a person's past words are used to bite them in the ass.

    Unjust laws (such as those constitutional amendments) deserve to be challenged and struck down as the unlawful/unjust/unconstitutional laws they are, just as interracial marriage bans were.

    Wrong. Most states passed their same sex marriage laws via a vote of their legislature or their people.

    States passed via legislation: Vermont, New York, Washington, Maine, Maryland, Rhode Island, Delaware, and Minnesota. And that is just some of them. That is also more than half, and therefore, means your contention is wrong about "most" being activist judges.

    And back in the 50s, over 75% of the US population supported interracial marriage bans. People change, voters change. Old people die, young people grow up. When DOMA was passed, I wasn't even old enough to vote yet. I still knew it was wrong. Now, I've voted in a number of elections since then. And many of those in my family who would be strongly against gay marriage are now dead, while the majority of the family supports it.

    You're again, wrong. California. There was a ban, and it has been overturned. Just as interracial marriage bans were overturned in the past (even those written into state constitutions).
