    The SCOTUS has ruled they will leave it up to the states to decide and will not take up a nationwide ruling on same sex marriage. This means that lower court ruling will stay in place unless challenged in the future. No federal ruling of marriage is in the near future....
    SCOTUS did not rule that states can decide. If that were the case, they would have overturned the Circuit Court rulings that struck down the bans the states decided were constitutional. If anything, by dismissing the cases SCOTUS has implicitly affirmed the rulings of the circuit courts that states cannot ban same-sex marriage.

    You have a bizarre reading of this decision. Somehow, in your mind the fact that 11 states are being told by federal courts that they cannot ban same-sex marriage means states are deciding SSM? What?

    Granted. But I don't think it matters. Even with the reconstruction amendments blacks were treated as de facto second class citizens in much of the country for almost another hundred years. We did a crappy job of implementation. That still doesn't narrow the actual scope of the amendment.

    i understood it perfectly. it's the classic "of course homosexuals can get married; to someone of the opposite sex! (even though homosexuality is not a choice, and they are as attracted to members of the opposite sex as heterosexuals are to the same sex, so this argument is fatally flawed.)"

    i've read this same bull**** argument about a thousand times now, and it's still bull****.

    OMG!!!! You mean the federal government is now going to be forced to allow states to determine their own position??? No wonder Holder is leaving ... he'd have nothing left to do.
