Looking forward to the outcome of this and many other lawsuits around the Country!!!

I know there is a Full Faith and Credit Clause lawsuit out of Kentucky and then the ongoing lawsuits in Nevada, Hawaii, Michigan, New Mexico and now these three in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and New Jersey........it's gonna be a busy time in the courts over the next couple of years......but if these cases win.....that will put Marriage Equality States up to 22 and 44%........this could be possible before 2020!!!

The law barring the State from recognizing marriages from other states violates: Article IV [The States]

Section 1.[Full Faith and Credit]
Section 1.

"Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof."

That section clearly shows that CONGRESS and not the STATES can set these laws! I blows the whole "States Rights" BS right out of the water.

(The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.)

Section 2.[Privileges and Immunities, Extradiction, Fugitive Slaves] paragraph 1.

"The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states." Once again the anti gays have redefined what the original intent of the word "ALL"

It is also a violation of the Supremacy clause in Article 6, paragraph 2:
"This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding."

Once again there goes the "States rights BS" right out the window!

You what's funny?? MY reaction when I saw the two women pictured above (even before I noticed the baby) was, "They look like two people it would be fun to get to know!"

And yet, the bigots of the world see the same two women and think, "Oh, no!!! HORRORS!!! The end is near!! People that don't look like me are acting in ways that scare me!!!"

It hate it that we still have to put up with such idiots.

Actually, it's just Darrin (or is it Darrell, or Derwood, or Durbin, or Derwin, or Darwin, or Derby...) sitting jacking off.

He already did.

What have you done to help a homeless child BTW?

Besides trolling gay websites I don't think you are much of an activist.
