    It will follow the same timetable inter-racial marriage did. It was legal in most of the country for quite a while and then the south followed along about 50 years after everybody else. As is usually the case.

    You said "gays deserve marriage because a group of ideological supreme court justices in Maryland decreed gays deserve marriage" whereas in fact the justices decreed they deserve marriage because gays want (and deserve) marriage.

    I think the word you used, "want" is quite telling.
    I want a million dollars. Give it to me, I deserve it. Wait, what am I saying, BO and his cronies are already levelling the field. That's called socialism.

    And, yes, I agree, ideolgical Maryland judges did decree gays deserve marriage.

    How about giving all those poor students who can't get an A on their schoolwork the right of an A?
    Think of the repercussions. Not being allowed into the finest colleges. Heck, some students unable to get into college at all. Some students living 'hand to mouth' because they couldn't get an A.

    Somehow, I missed both the right of getting an A on schoolwork and gay marriage in the Constitution. This is why the Maryland judges are, IMO, ideological.

    Is everyone else being handed a million dollars except you based on your race, religion, gender or sexual preference? If the answer to that is yes then I would make the case that there is legitimate discrimination and you could push for you being treated equally. If no, then your analogy is invalid.

    Where is the gay marriage clause in the Maryland state or US Constitution? Hum?
    I'm guessing the Maryland ideologues used at least one of those documents when it decreed gay marriage...

    If the Defense of marriage act gets overturned by the Supremes (pretty darn likely) there will be married gay couples in every state, even if they have to go to another state to get married.
