The Constitution doesn't mention many, many things. It doesn't mention cars, computers, or jets. And yet aspects of each one of these items can be argued before the Supreme Court.
Marriage of interracial couples was argued before the Supreme Court. Polygamy was argued before the Supreme Court. And now Same-Sex Marriage has been argued before the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has not nullified anything that exists in the Constitution--at least not with the Proposition 8 case or the DOMA case.
Amendments have been made to the Constitution. These amendments were added according to the process provided by the original Constitution.
Based on the Supreme Court's interpretation of the Fifth Amendment, Section 3 of DOMA was found to be Unconstitutional. This allows married Same-Sex couples to qualify for Federal Benefits in those states that currently (or in the future) recognizes Same-Sex marriage.
Now I realize that this flies in your face. You don't like it. But your only recourse is to start your own movement, find your own attorneys, fight your own court cases and eventually bring your own arguments before the Supreme Court. Good luck with that.
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?

Enter a new California bill, AB1333 this will require local governments to review all roll over contracts or EverGreen contracts.

So long (crooked) Athens Services, or some might call them as Toxic to local city governments.

Special thanks for the likes of Gary and Linda Clifford - special events are always planned.

This comment is for Reverend Alan,

I do not know if you are talking about my comments or not, but if you are, that is OK because I am protected by God and His Holy Word. Nobody can offend me when I am quoting Scripture because I am not the writer of the Scriptures. My only hope is that people will find the Truth in Studying the Scriptures and set them Free. Everyone has sinned and has fallen short of the Glory of God and we all come to God the same way. The Catholics do not have a edge on Christianity like alot of people think. For most of them, their God is the Pope and not to say that the Pope is probably a very good person, but he is no better than anyone else and we ALL have to come to Christ the same way. The Church has been so tossed around that people of today do not even know the meaning. The word Church means "Called Out", so for those who accept Christ as their personal Savior or Lord of their Lives, they are part of a body of believers whoever they may be and they make up the word "Church-Called Out". My husband and I of 55 years have been Studying the Word of God since we were first married and that is what has kept our marriage together because we both have Christ in our lives and we put Christ First and then we can get along like God intended us to do in the first place...I started writing in this forum for about 2 weeks now and it has been more than a disappointment in my opinion. That is OK though because it would not prevent me from continue to write from time to time to get opinions and try to share what the Holy Spirit has taught me personally. I quoted a verse of which I have not seen put on this forum as yet, so I may be discriminated against, not sure, but that is OK too, but I quote from the New Testment in the Book of I Corinthians Chapter 1 Verses 12-14 and I quote: "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which thngs also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the "NATURAL MAN RECEIVETH NOT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD; FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS UNTO HIM NEITHER CAN HE KNOW THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED." If you are not a Christian, I would suggest that you Study the Scriptures fully, for you will have a new Awakening when you do. May God help you with this and you will have Eternal Life when you accept God's sacrifice of Jesus (Yeshua), for he will forgive you for no matter what sin you have committed. Amen & Amen

Pity for you, it must suck to be you, but I'm not you, so your pain is something to which I am indifferent.
Oh good, you're everything I could hope for, a....consumerist. Princess, don't you have something to go buy? I mean, you go girl, you be as aggressive as you want to be...as a matter fact.

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.
