    I'm a ninja like that. I am in favor of gay marriage, though I do not deem it a "right".

    Easy answer for me. It's up to the states, and not the Federal government's business.

    Don't like it, don't attend their wedding.

    Re: Gay marriage

    Yeah I agree, it should be a federally mandated right.

    I think the idea of "oh forget it, just let the states decide" is careless and dismissive. Sometimes I see it as an attempt to avoid having an opinion on gay marriage.

    I don't think the Fed should be in the marriage business in the first place. Let the states decide and go from there.

    In that case I think the DOMA should be dumped.

    Re: Gay marriage

    My position has changed over the years even since this forum has been created. I believe it should be up to the states - period. Fed should stay out of it. Marriage is nothing but a local and state tax on citizens anyway so to define it as a guaranteed right is disingenuous. There is no natural *right* in paying taxes.

    However, I do *not* believe that states should be forced to recognize other states marriages. Repeal the 14th amendment (at minimum equal protection) and we are golden.
    If you analyse it, I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. -Ronald Reagan

    I am also known as "vauge".
