True, and DOMA is in fact Unconstitutional.<quoted text>
the only federal mandate regarding gay marraige, is the defense of marraige act......which is likely to be ruled unconstitutional soon.
I put nothing past the SCOTUS, they are drunk with power, and have been damn near the Marshall court.<quoted text>
you dont really think the court is going to mandate gay marrige on the federal level?? like with abortion??
There are 2 cases under consideration. DOMA is but one.<quoted text>
just because they are considering the constitutionality of dOMA??
I wouldn't go that far, they did rewrite Obama care to rule it Constitutional.<quoted text>
they are a conservative court by nature.....not reallly an activist court.....like in 1973
That would be partially correct. I do think CA presents an interesting case though where I could see the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment coming into play as there are 2 classes of homosexuals, one group which is in fact legally married and another which can no longer enjoy that privilege. The only issue I really have with that being the decision is that this second class of homosexual would have been created by a ruling of the court, not a legislative or electoral process, and if in fact they rule that it is an issue left to the State's, than the previous decision by the court should also be tossed.<quoted text>
the least they can do is strike it down and send the issue back to the states to decide!!
Again, I make no prediction, I can simply state what I believe is the Constitutional answer and provide sources to support my position. What the court does is anyone's guess.<quoted text>
which is what is likely to happen...wouldnt you agree??
