The states really don't have a horse in the race
.
The federal government (not the states) controls the taxation and distribution of the 1,137 rights, benefits, and privileges of marriage; all $467,562 worth of it

.
This is why I believe the Supreme Court will apply marriage equality universally across all of America

I am by no means a legal scholar, but I highly doubt that is going to happen in this session. It is true the Feds control the items you mention, but states still write the rules. And States Rights are still a large issue with many voters, especially after the Affordable Care Act. I believe the SCOTUS is aware of the backlash it would incur, and will limit its' ruling. I would like for you to be correct, but I have reservations.

Rob Reiner arranged this whole lawsuit--what could go wrong? Clarence Thomas was perpendicular during your entire argument, chatting with someone.

Why not wait until the conservatives were replaced to seal your fate?

Can you at least write bad reviews of Olson and Boies on Angie's List?

Oh, bliss! Bliss and Heaven! It was gorgeousness and gorgeousity! THE SUPREME COURT DECISION IS COMING!

And DOMA & Prop 8 will both be overturned, which was the intent of both these lawsuits. A nationwide ruling will wait for another court case another day once we've replaced Scalia & Kennedy on the SCOTUS.

Spin it however you want, but the coming rulings will be a win for the pro-equality side.

So, in other words, per the Supreme Court blacks are superior to you.

You are a ridiculous child wearing a scarf and black framed plastic glasses.

Your friends have raspy voices and nihilistic listlessness.

That's why I teach my children blacks are better than you, and now I have proof.

No matter what the court decides, the issue will not be over. It will be like the abortion issue. All these years later the debate still rages because all people will not lay down the principles, values, and beliefs for gays. Decades from now, people will still be hanging onto those and be willing to speak out. I believe gays are after blanket approval and believe that "gay marriage" will settle that and give them that approval once and for all. It will not happen. Before you saying the nay-sayers are all dying off, I think that the pro-abortion people believed that just old people opposed abortion and that they would all die off. Anti-abortion folks come in all all groups, and many of them are people who bought into the lie and had abortions. Now, after suffering the ill effects of having done so, they are often the most anti-abortion folks out there.

It has nothing to do with race. The federal govt will no longer be able to discriminate against married same-sex couples. Neither will California.

Who cares, as long as the govt has to treat same-sex couples equally, it doesn't matter what you or anyone else thinks.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery, especially when you handed Scalia the ability to block forever your darker purpose--the end of religion.

You homosexuals were involved at the IRS in attacking religious organizations, weren't you?

The homosexual lobby in the Vatican explains who the initial report concluded homosexuals molested the boys, but the final version blamed the 1960s and Rock and Roll. Even the NY Times--and I can show you--said homosexuals did it.

As Alito told you: we need more time to evaluate. Couple more centuries should do it.

You homosexuals cited nothing but black precedent.

The cover of your magazine--what's its name?--had a famous cover that said "Homosexual is the New Black."

Bestiality couples and dope dealers and those poor prostitutes and polygamists will use you as precedent.

Compare the treatment blacks got at the Supreme Court with your own.

You got the bum's rush.

So true, isn't it?

The homosexuals got caught completely off-guard with the supreme backlash in France--imagine America!!

So naive or stupid. You're getting ridiculous trying to do damage control.

Homosexuals will never be given the reins of government. Keep burrowing into organizations like the little moles you are.

Mole hunts happen all the time.

It all depends on how many anti-gays are on the SCOTUS. We know there are 4 for sure, but 2 of them will be dead soon and replaced by pro-equality justices.

Whether it's this year or the next decade, in the end we'll win.
