    If you are talking about doma then you do know that the amendments trump any other law right? And last I knew Doma was not an amendment.

    Irrelevant. The Federal Government does not recognize gay marriage as discrimination, and leaves it for each state to decide. So as I stated the amendments do not apply.

    Yes lets. But this has nothing to do with my argument. But thanks for the fallacy anyway.

    How do amendments not apply? The whole point of them is that they are the highest laws of the land.

    Also I believe you were saying previously that marriage is a religious institution in America, which is demonstrably false based on the fact that atheists and mixed religion couples can be married. The legal definition of marriage is not in anyway Christian, the marriage practiced in churches are Christian and they differ from denomination to denomination but they are irrelevant because they would not be affected by the legalization of same-sex marriage.

    And it has nothing at all to do with the point I was making. They mite, so what? I am talking about the way it stands now.

    Your response was the equivalent of: "Well wait until my big brother gets here!" nothing more.
