    As long as the fed govt is doling out benefits on the basis of marriage status, yes

    I"d be more sympathetic to your pov if the states' rights crowd complained about the feds intrusion on the state issue of marriage

    Well as soon as you successfully get the government out of ALL marriages let us know. Until then gays will fight for the same government recognition as straight couples get when they want to marry.

    Such an ignorant and unintelligent comment. Not surprising coming from you.

    It is posted on this board in the sex thread, read it last night. I can't wait until you find an excuse as to why some people might be attracted to animals or something else

    And they should have it, as I explained.

    Really? So the Federal Government getting out of the business would harm the rights of those that did pass same-sex marriage laws?

    And that's what makes the issue complicated. It's called Judeo-Christian values. Marriage is defined as man and women, period. But what the gay marriage crowd fails to understand is there is no difference between Marriage and Civil Union legally if the Defense of Marriage Act was stuck down.

    Hence you need the Federal Government out of "Marriage". It's the Federal Government that is oppressing the rights to benefits, not States.
