That's why there was such a hurry to put in all those bans, one generation trying keep down the next in their movement toward freedom and equality.

Right wing "intelligentsia" meaning those who think the earth is 8000 years old rather than the obviously too young 6000 years old.

Bravo.

Well, at least they have proven evolution is true, if they can evolve ... anything can.

The die is cast.

All future Democratic candidates will have to support marriage equality, setting up the perfect contrast between equality and continued discrimination.

Not really..like our founding fathers with their support of slavery, even the great americans of the time will forever have their history stained by that bigotry. Bill Clinton will always have that asterisk after his name of signing DOMA.

Our kids will look at these last generations and think, how could they be so wrong?!?

at least my kids know i was doing what i could to change it...

I think that really depends on when we can flip the court to a liberal majority.

IF the current court is going to do it, then they'll do it in Jun.

Otherwise we have to wait for Scalia and/or Kennedy to step down and hope a Dem is in the White House to replace them. That could mean another decade or more of state-by-state battles.

At least we'll know which way it's going to go in about 3 months.

The right-wing intelligentsia:

As Lily Tomlin's character Ernestine the telephone operator so gleefully pronounced: "I am a high-school graduate."

Maybe they have all their front teeth, too.
