    Of course, many states no longer need to do this. Courts work just as well.



    You only decided this once it became obvious that same-sex marriage was going to become legal nationwide. Admitting that to yourself is the first step.
    Do not pretend to know me nor my thoughts. Do you agree with the other court which has upheld states' ban on the issue?

    In the end, you only need to convince yourself. What I think isn't important.

    Of course, getting the government out of marriage entirely isn't going to happen, as both of us know.

    Do you agree with the other court which has upheld states' ban on the issue?
    No. Their legal argument was weak. So weak, in fact, that one wonders if they were intentionally creating the circuit split just to force SCOTUS to take the case.

    See now, there's the problem. Libs want government not only in marriage, but in any damn thing they can get it in, as long as they think it will get them votes.

    Oh please. Don't act like "government shouldn't recognize any marriage or grant any of its benefits" is some mainstream conservative platform. It's a tiny minority of faux-libertarians expressing this idea, and the vast majority of those people are only saying it because now it's obvious same-sex marriage will happen, so they want to take "their" ball and go home.

    Taking the govt out of marriage is the exact opposite of "conservative". Maybe you shold reconsider your lean.

    We don't need another amendment. The 14th already necessitates marriage equality.
