    I don't recall anyone saying that after the oral arguments. In fact, people were kind of surprised by some of the line of questioning that made it appear that it could go either way...however, no one predicted the reasoning that the court actually decided it on. The vote on the marriage equality is completely different. Not only did the votes in the DOMA and Prop 8 give an indication on where the justices are headed...Kennedy's opinion gave a clear preview of where the court is heading when a case is brought before them, such that Scalia felt the need to lash out in his vitriolic dissent. Add into that the recent decision to not stay the lower court rulings and it is clear that this battle is over except for the final ballot. There is no way that the court would put the state of the marriages in a condition that they would be if the Court were going to rule against marriage equality. They say its not over til the fat lady sings....but she's about 3/4ths of the way through the song and she is going to finish it....no question. We will be celebrating freedom and marriage equality for all in June....guaranteed.

    If you understood the Supremacy Clause and the US Constitution, you could answer your own question. I suggest you pick up a book and educate yourself about what the Supremacy Clause is and how it dictates the way that our country operates. Its actually quite fascinating and makes a lot of sense when you understand it.

    Sure, indecency laws are typically locally determined.

    Don't include appeals to patience like this in your argument: "a wait of a few more months is not going to kill any one"

    Then whine about it being refuted as bland reductionism. You sound just like the anti equality crowd - "they already have equal rights, let the states sort it out, no rush"

    This is only a legal case because bigots thought there was a state of emergency to prevent two dudes from marrying. The litany of ballot drives was certainly not an exercise of patience

    And try being a 2nd class citizen, officially for 7 years, and then saying there's no rush

    If they're based on such things as age, gender or race (for example) then they'd be discriminatory.

    The supremecy clause is garbage. But anyway, what federal law expressly gives gays the right to marry?
