Thank me.
That can't be right... You are the lowest common (and I mean "common" in every sense of the word) denominator. And I don't think you're on our side.

Zimmer may have escaped prison but he has a price on his head now!

Wanted is an understatement.

He will always be looking over his shoulder from now on!

The Constitution didn't define marriage. And DOMA is an "act" not an "amendment".
If the states ratified an "amendment" then the Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8 and DOMA would be nullified. It would also invalidate every single same-sex marriage in the country; even in those states that have passed marriage equality laws.
Given the shit-storm that every politician would face if they voted to amend the Constitution to invalidate same-sex marriages, I don't think this is a likely scenario.
They would be voted out of office and replaced with politicians who would then amend the Constitution again.
I don't think that the Republicans have the votes to amend the Constitution.
If you want to see a backlash against the Republican party, have them try to amend the Constitution on this issue. Nothing would advance LGBT issues more so than an outright attack on us by Republicans.
They may fight against us--try to slow down our advance. But they won't go nuclear on us. Too much has changed. The country is on our side.
If the federal marriage amendment, defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman, only, to the constitution, would that make the constitution unconstitutional?

I think I did a damn good job answering your question the first time, given your piss-poor sentence structure.

I had to try to figure out exactly what you are asking. If I didn't answer you question to your satisfaction, maybe you can repeat the question I a more coherent manner.

Is there supposed to be a comma before the word "only"? And the phrase "to the constitution"; what does that mean?

Any amendment to the Constitution would make the Constitution constitutional.

I don't know what's wrong with you and Pietro... You're both having difficulty making your points.

Are you both drinking?

You constantly talk about "reality". You define marriage as between one man and one woman as being the only "real" marriage.

So, according to your response above, that would make you a "child".
