    Well, I hope they make the right decision and leave it to the States. The Feds should keep their noses out of it. At least half the Court are cowards, so you might get what you want.

    You hope this but the 14th amendment applies to all state laws. This isn't a conflict, or a question of the 10th versus the 14th. States have the authority to "define marriage," that is already established. However, any such definitions still must comply with the 14th.

    Check the facts here: http://www.debatepolitics.com/genera...post1062823882.
    1.) because its true all recent polls range from 53-59%
    not to mention majority support isnt needed since this is an equal rights issue
    2.) its not a fact, as usual you are posting a lie that nobody honest educated and objective takes seriously (as one cab see by the multiple posters proving your claims wrong)all the polls prove your claim wrong)

    the fact remains the majority of Americans do support equal rights
    the fact also remains that support is just a bonus since its not needed on this equal rights issue.
    no amount of posted lies, dishonest, illogical and unsupportable theories or mentally inept, retarded, inane, pseudo-intellectual ranting filled with obvious bigotry and hate will ever change that fact lol

    Where in the forum rules are we required only to take genuine positions? The forum has even awarded me for taking opposing views. You need to check yourself.

    My view on SSM is "they can't do worse than I did, let'em have a shot". Everything else is just me passing time.
    you do what you want but this isn't a nuanced issue. Trying to 'understand' the POV of bigots isn't on my priority list

    I agree 100%!!!!

    if they follow the constitution like the super vast majority of the many cases and 45+ judges equal rights will be national and that benefits all Americans!

    They like will rule correctly in accordance with Constitution, upholding the 14th Amendment as they should. The states do not have the right to deny equal protection to their citizens, including concerning legal marriage, on the basis of either sex or sexuality without showing why such restrictions further at least a legitimate state interest.

    Justice Department Will Urge Supreme Court To Rule In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage
    The U.S. Justice Department, however, isn’t standing inactive on the sidelines — they’re stepping forward to put in their own two cents on how same-sex marriage cases should be settled. According to the Washington Blade, Eric Holder has stated that the Justice Department will file a Friends of the Court brief, in which they will “urge the Supreme Court to make marriage equality a reality for all Americans.”
    Holder said. “It is time for our nation to take another critical step forward to ensure the fundamental equality of all Americans — no matter who they are, where they come from, or whom they love.” - See more at: Holder to file brief arguing marriage rights 'for all Americans'

    He and the other "states' rights" aficionados weren't so particular when the fed passed "DOMA" either, which was a severe restriction on states' ability to define marriage
