<quoted text>What will you say when DOMA
Can any of you read? I have already stated my position on DOMA.

One more time since you and your clan seem a bit slow- SEC 3 of DOMA is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

Got it?

, Prop 8
Prop 8 is a very distinct issue. CA is currently the only State where one can make the argument that the 14th Amendment has been violated. This is due to the fact that there are currently homosexuals in CA whom are legally marriage and will continue to be so even with prop 8. This creates a "special class" of homosexual citizen within the State- one class which can and is legally married, and another second class which cannot.

I fully expect the SCOTUS to uphold the Walker decision, I also fully expect them to limit that decision to the State of California. It is in fact the correct and Constitutional thing to do.

and other state wide bans against same sex marriage are struck down by SCOTUS?? Will you then agree with the law, or demand a new ruling?
Now this is a wide net. There is no enumerated power within the Constitution for the Federal Government to regulate or otherwise define marriage, thus under the 10th Amendment this falls to the State. This is the exact logic the court used when it ruled DOMA unconstitutional. I feel the court won't touch the issue of same sex marriage on a national level.

Here is what I think will come out of the SCOTUS with these cases, and what also would be the Constitutional thing for the court to do.

First- Rule that Prop 8 is a violation of the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment for the reasons I stated above. They will limit this ruling strictly to California and the Prop 8 Issue.

Second- They will Rule that Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional for the same reasons as the lower court ruling- The Federal Government Lack's the enumerated power to define or regulate marriage- thus this power lies with the States to define and choose on their own. This will serve a dual purpose:
1) It will prevent the Federal Government from limiting, removing, or denying equal rights to homosexual couples whom are legally married by a State which allows such unions. They will be required to treat them exactly the same in regards to all regulations, benefits, and tax laws.
2) It will leave the States free to decide on their own what constitutes a marriage within their own boarders, as it should be based on the 9th and 10th Amendments of the Constitution. Now I really don't think it's going to be long before all State legalize same sex marriage, public opinion is moving in that direction, and most people really don't care. But based on our founding as a republic and union of individual sovereign State's, it is up to each to decide.

Now you may not like that, and that may not even be the way the SCOTUS rules, as just like the entire Federal Government they are in a power grab, and if they can find a way to give the Federal Government purview over the regulation and control of marriage they most certainly will. But you should ask yourself, is the the "freedom" you are looking for?

I will worry about it when you find some integrity Rose.

BTW, are you still confused as to why I presented quotes from the founders regarding their position on slavery when you asked about their feeling on the overturn of Loving v Virginia and the end of slavery?

Or are you still claiming that you said something about the 14th Amendment in your rant?

I have plenty of integrity. Remember, you are the one who edited my post to try to make it seem like I didn't know something.

Again, you lie. I never said anything about their feelings on the end of slavery. It's easy to show how dishonest you are!

Yeah, stupid, when I mention Loving v VA, I'm saying something about the 14th Amendment. Study the case:
http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/histori...
"This case presents a constitutional question never addressed by this Court: whether a statutory scheme adopted by the State of Virginia to prevent marriages between persons solely on the basis of racial classifications violates the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment."

Grow a pair, admit you made a mistake.
Your continued dishonesty just makes you look...dishonest.

You've seen no such thing.

Moreover you defend what you falsely judge.

Do I really need to post a link for you again?

Your entire post was a rant about slavery, woman's right to vote, and Loving v Virginia, culminating in you asking how the founders would feel about the decision.

Why don't you just admit you are out of gas. But the good news is you are still full of sh%%.
