    i think that is more important than if someone can marry.
    You seem to care, that's sure. Maybe it's just that no-one agrees with you. Maybe you're the only voice of reason in a cacophony of constitutional philistines.

    We simply need to rid our society of religion. It has always been behind when it comes to the evolving state of morals in our society. From slavery, to womens rights, to gay rights... religion has always fought against them until they had no choice to accept them.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    this judges ruling is in direct violation of the 10th amendment.

    even if you pass gay marriage my state is under non obligation to acknowledge that as based on constitutional law.

    Riddle me this lu..

    If a couple from a state that allows cousin marriages moves to a state that does not allow cousin marriages -- does the state that legally wed cousin marriage couple moved to recognize that marriage as valid?

    I might also recommend you introduce yourself to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution.

    May be a victory for some, throwing the baby out with the bath water, but it's a textbook pyrrhic victory.
    The 10th is alive and well, it gives those powers not delegated to the United States nor prohibited to the States to BOTH the states and people. Some who quote the 10th seem to think it ONLY gives rights/powers to the States if not granted to the feds. It by NO means approves of unconstitutional laws passed by state governments. A state that doesn't abide by the Constitution gets called out on it... the Judiciary doesn't rule us, it acts as a check to government over reach and government favoritism.

    If the Ayatollahs have the power, abortion would be illegal, women would be stoned for adultery, and any worship not sanctioned by them would be illegal. Oh and the whole women can't go to school or go in public alone.... so that rhetoric is rather silly...

    you might want to look at the 10th amendment.
    you also might want to look that most states already out law this through incest laws.

    From the court cases i have found which are few they all have been shot down as long as there was a statute that prohibited it.

    so if you married your cousin in one state and then went to another state as long as the statue was in place it would be found void.
