Even now, it is very likely that a decision by the SCOTUS to strike down SSM bans and/or DOMA on the basis of Equal Protection is not going to be unanimous (unfortunately) and there is even the slight possibility that it won't happen with the first case or two to reach the SCOTUS. I just think that it is more likely to be done by the SCOTUS than our Congress, and especially more likely than trying to change each state's laws/constitutions one at a time, even with support for SSM being over 50% and growing.
    While you say that there is more support for SSM than there was for banning anti-miscegenation laws, at the time of Loving v. Virginia there were only 16 states enforcing the laws. So, you're comparison is a little silly. Why would people be up in arms about laws that weren't being enforced anyway?

    Probably because 72% of the country wasnt for it.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    What part of those laws weren't they enforcing? Was it the part where they were allowing them to live together, where they were actually allowing them to have legal marriage even if the law said they couldn't, or were they recognizing legal marriages from other states when their laws said they couldn't? Obviously some were enforcing the laws, since a couple was arrested and forced to leave the state they were living in due to their marriage.

    The difference now is that the couples don't have to worry about being arrested, so those against SSM figure that is some sort of compromise against not allowing them to have equal marriage rights. "Well, at least they aren't being arrested for living together as a married couple."

    Plus, then, people didn't have access to TV and people telling them through commercials and billboard ads all the time how certain other people's relationships were going to affect their own relationships. They didn't care directly because they didn't see every case where a law might not have been being followed brought up (such as the "family" group that brought the case against the law in Wisconsin). But when asked directly if they were for interracial marriage or not, the majority of people said they weren't.

    We are seeing the opposite happen now, where the majority (although small) of people when polled have been saying that they are for same sex marriage, yet support for anti-SSM bans are higher because those who don't care or don't consider it important to them vote less than those who are adamently against same sex marriage.

    Homosexuals disgust me. Thank God for AIDS. At least there's one non PC disease that will help us rid the world of the disgusting and sickening perverts.

    aids affects straight people too moron. It's too bad we don't have a cure for stupid.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I have a differing opinion and you resort to name-calling? Sad, but indeed, predictable.

    If you're trying to piss people off and start a fight, it would probably help if you didn't make your trolling so obvious.

    Fortunately, your differing opinion is not supported by facts.

    Interesting, is it name-calling if it's the truth?
