Just like you informed me Federal Law is above state law, Defense of Marriage Act clearly lays out that legal marriage, in the United States, is that of man and woman.<quoted text>
The Marriage Amendment, concocted by NC Republican Legislators, is just the beginning of exlusionary freedoms imposed by your party that will eventually be overruled by the Courts based on the 14th Amendment. That is group #1 that you have excluded. Shall we continue?
States can't bow out of the Union peacefully, then no same sex marriages.
