    That's your opinion which you are entitled to and which I and most Americans will ignore.

    No need to rebut what has already been rebutted and ignored by you. EVERYTHING you post as "fact" is transparently just your opinion. But hey, enjoy your duplicate thread.

    I again ask if you believe your opinion to be true simply point out the opinions of mine that i called facts and prove them not to be true, We are waiting.

    Fact:
    these marriages are currently recognized by the FED

    2 questions:

    A) If the legality of SSM in Utah is still undecided...were those marriages legally performed?

    B) If we have the US vs. Windsor decision, then how can any state challenge it? That SCOTUS decision is based on "equal protection and equal treatment under the law."
    1.) correct its not a court case or a decision really its a clarification.
    2.) I dont know about ANY youd have to be more specific. But these ones, YES currently

    A.) Yes 100% for now
    B.) not sure what you are asking here in states where no SSM marriages have been legally performed theres nothing to challenge in either direction.

    No he didn't. He said that they do not have to recognize those marriages they allowed UNTIL the case is over. He made no statement on a states ability to deny SSM or not. That is for the court to decide.

    Hmm. I don't think they like gays in Russia. The Russians are more like you than you think. Putin and you are like peas in a pod I bet.

    The STATE of Utah handed out those marriage licenses. Over 1000 of them in about a week.
