    You're here to make yourself feel good. You can't "keep an eye on society" on an internet forum, or anywhere for that matter.

What DOMA does is say that states and the federal government do not have to recognize those marriages.

    Say that in a goofy southern accent and it would sound exactly like a confederate racist whining about the end of slavery circa 1861.

    It would be in the hands of the state to determine who they would marry. However, the states would have to treat as married people married in other states just as most marriages are now. So a gay couple could get married in NY, go back to Bum**** Arkansas and still be married. States cannot nullify contracts from other states.

    I will host the party if you want. I think I know most of the gays in Atlanta anyway.

    Yep. Who knows, maybe this is the issue that sets the Third American Revolution into motion. Each side has won one of the first two, and there's going to have to be a deciding game one of these days.

    At least until their neighbors dragged them out of their home and lynched them.

    And then spend the rest of their lives in jail. The fact that most people in this country according to the most recvent polling don't actually have a problem with gay people suggests this is unlikely, but hey, it's why we have jails and in some states the death penalty.

    Unintentional joke.

    Keep kidding yourself.

    America is about freedom. I know you hate that, but that's the way it is.
