    Thats because Monica was under the desk while Bill was defending marriage.

    Both Republicans and Democrats supported DOMA in 1994 in both houses of Congress (342 in the House, 85 in the Senate, votes for this bill). That was enough to get a Federal Marriage Amendment through both houses. Unlike Obamacare (which Obama supported, for whatever insane reason), Clinton did not really support DOMA, he simply knew that it would be pointless to stop it. He didn't even allow photos to be taken when he signed it.

    Fine in the meantime you have no right to try and enforce your perverted ideas on others by trying to deny them SSM.

    Lol. I highly doubt god is going to issue harsher judgment on, let's say, gay police, doctors, nurses, firefighters, soldiers, paramedics, peace corp volunteers

    Than he is going to issue upon you - a man who spends countless hours spewing vitriolic hate at people who just want equality.

    I'm pretty sure the ugliness that you display everyday on these forums will be taken into consideration by your god.

    Didn't I suggest that very thing to you like about a thousand posts ago.....

    God makes gay people, god will deal with gay people, and therefore YOU don't have to worry about gay people or what they do.

    You're time would be much more productively spent worrying about world hunger, poverty, education, healthcare, literacy..........

    I also know that saying it's unfair for people in SSM to not have legal rights in states that don't permit SSM, its nothing but a new avenue to attack the laws of that state. Bring in custody of children who might suddenly end up there is another.
    I made that comment in regards to opposite sex marriages. If you claim that one state can opt to not recognize the SSM from another state, then likewise that same principle can be applied to OSM.

    My question is why you would want to live in a state who's majority doesn't want you there?
    Good job, little pollution, family who supports you near by,...there are all kinds of reasons. You could as well ask why would I live in a state where they tax everything including the amount of impermiable surfaces to the rain that I have (see MD's Rain Tax). Some places are worth working hard to change and to live in despite other issues. Why didn't all the mix race couples just move out of the states where the majority didn't want them?

    It addresses the argument that while Paul condemned gay sex relations (Romans 1:26-27) that Jesus did not. So my point was that Jesus (God) did address it.

Maybe your church doesn't allow same sex marriage. I support that, Neither does mine. I can't (nor should anyone) support using that as reasoning not to allow equal treatment to others.
    The problem is there are divine consequences: God's judgment on men and nations. So we can't just say that because it's legal, then we don't have to worry about anything else.

    Sorry, I don't see that. Besides, gay sex was already condemned in the Old Testament as well as the NT.

    I don't try to convince people. I just try to show people where our beliefs come from. And we also think the Old Testament versus are either mistranslated or taken out of context.
