Should be a foregone conclusion because the Conservatives have a majority in the House so even though all opposition parties are opposed, the motion will pass.

    Re: **BREAKING** U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Rule on Gay Marriage

    While I would have loved to have had the moment where the USSC ruled definitively that bans on marriage equality violate the Constitution, I have realized over the last couple of days that this refusal to accept the case pretty much does the same thing. This is essentially the final nail in the coffin of the bigots who seek to deny marriage equality. With 30 states soon to have marriage equality and more ready to follow suit, it will only be a year or two where less than a handful of Southern states are still clinging to their bigotry. This is probably the easier way to spoonfeed freedom and equality to the fence sitters.

    Another bad day to be a bigot in America.

    Historically, states have honored the marriages from other states but it would be interesting to see how a non-gay marriage state would handle the legal union of a married gay couple that moved into their state. That would be the only route I could see for gay couples to force the SCOTUS to take up the gay marriage ban.
    No, it's a human rights issue and that scenario of married couples becoming 'unmarried' when travelling or moving has been a huge problem since like 2006 or whenever MA became the first state.

I suggest that you read up on your conlaw, particularly loving v. Virginia...
    Oh, damn. You almost BS'd your way through that until you fell into that "Loving v. Virginia" trap. Nice try, but no cigar.

    You missed the point, which is that it was the states that made those laws in the first place.

    LOL, you have got to be kidding. I sure hope you are, because otherwise, you have no credibility. Hey, how about when your boy, Obama, needed contributions and votes, and all of a sudden, the man who believes marriage is only between a man and a woman, turns on a dime and supports SSM! LOL! Nah, had nothing to do with needing votes! LOL!!! Yeah, keep telling yourself that. Republicans would do it too, at least I have the integrity to admit it. But, oh no, not those democrats, not Obama, they are sooooo pure. What a joke.

    And you missed the point that the Supreme Court jumped right in and said, "Yep, you guys are right!", in their ruling, which is what they do, make rulings. Which was conveniently left out earlier, because then the point looked dumb.

    So what are you doing, blaming the Supreme Court? Earlier you were lauding state rights, then you lumped segregation in with slavery and internment camps (I'll assume you categorize these as negative things), now...what?

    Whatever makes him feel good for the span of about fifteen seconds given the coherency of his posts
