Ok, now Mr. President, if you could now please, please right another wrong and strike down the rule where we have to live in the state to receive the Federal Benefits. Its like 2 America's Sir. It's like the gays in the other states don't matter. I'm very sad today, even though I know baby steps. I'm 55 in Dallas, voted for you sir and had hoped we could right this wrong during your Presidency. Anything you can do Mr. President would greatly be appreciated by many natural born American gay citizens that pay taxes too. Gosh can we just get rid of all Republicans?And take religion out of politics! Thank you Mr. President. Darn it looks like another Gay Revolution!
Sadly the President can't do much more than he's been doing.

We have to have Congress Act.

Pass Legislation that will Enforce the F.F.C.C. of the Constitution in marriage rights!
Article IV
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.
Section 2.

The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states."

But it would be interesting now for the President announce he intends try to enforce it himself. But then you have the Posse Comitatus Act to consider as well.

SCOTUS punted. They held onto the "States Rights" parachute, once agina ignoring Amendments 9, 13 as well as Article IV Sec. 1 & 2.

It appears to me Scalia and others decided to use the Constitution the same way they use their Bibles. They picked what gave them an out.

I love your ironic wit, because they did rule both "literally" and "figuratively" in a really weird sense.

When it came to the ultimate question, "MARRIAGE EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW" they dodged.

There a couple of Federal Agencies that let the local laws control, but they don't have to. I expect that these will be altered by Executive Order once the SCotUS certifies it's Decision in about a month.

Don't worry we won't. Just stay away from the USA. Where all are equal.
