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.

That can't be right... You are the lowest common (and I mean "common" in every sense of the word) denominator. And I don't think you're on our side.
