    Then that's something which will have to be worked out. It's not something which outweighs the fundamental right to marry whom you choose. I mean, "no, sorry, you can't get married because the accounting is too complex" just doesn't cut it.

    the courts, and hence the law, have sided that we have a right to limit government programs.

    the argument over if same sex marriage is protected based on gender is one that the courts might give consideration to.

    but under what logic are polygamists going to claim they are a protected class?

    That is not the way it's going. Who knew you were such a social conservative?

    The court decisions making SSM legal haven't been based on gender discrimination, but on discrimination against homosexuality, which is also not a protected class. "Class" doesn't enter into it. It's about a fundamental individual right.

    I am not sure which decision you are speaking of.

    the issue at the federal level of what level of scrutiny must be met in regards to SSM has not been resolved. Silence from the courts means the lowest level is currently the defacto law..or at least that is my understanding
