I think all marriage equality cases should cite Article 4 as well as amendments 9 and 14. Heck they should even bring in Amendment 1 (religious freedom)
I agree and have been saying the exact same thing here for a very long time. Yet each time I point out FFC, I get severely criticized for it.

Just because FFC has never been applied to state marriage laws before, doesn't mean it isn't applicable, or that the federal courts, including SCOTUS, will not apply it in the future.

If they can slip the purportedly "dead" Amendment. IX in there somehow I'll be ecstatic. That one is like a key to the mentally imprisoned's gates.
