This shows that many, many more people are killed by guns than by knives.
Why not read before posting it?
I did read it and understood. It was late and I failed to explain. But then since you read I figured you would see the title Murder Victims by Weapons. It did not say Comparing Murders by Guns to Knives.

It that doesn’t suit your fancy, fire me. LOL

Doesn't DOMA actually follow and protect the tenth amendment?
Why is it unconstitutional?
OK, I'll give you one lesson. There are many others.

Under DOMA, a homosexual couple who are legally married (in a state where gay marriage is recognized), is deprived of benefits which, under federal law, a heterosexual married couple will receive.

Nothing to do with the tenth amendment. Nothing that leaves anything to the states. Quite the contrary.

DOMA is unconstitutional, and the Supreme Court will so hold.

You heard it from Catcher; you can put your money on it.

Proverbs 8: 22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

Big Mud Puddles and Sunny Yellow Dandelions
Author Unknown
When I look at a patch of dandelions, I see a bunch of weeds that are going to take over my yard.
My kids see flowers for Mom and blowing white fluff you can wish on.
When I look at an old drunk and he smiles at me, I see a smelly, dirty person who probably wants money and I look away.
My kids see someone smiling at them and they smile back.
When I hear music I love, I know I can't carry a tune and don't have much rhythm so I sit self-consciously and listen.
My kids feel the beat and move to it. They sing out the words. If they don't know them, they make up their own.
When I feel wind on my face, I brace myself against it. I feel it messing up my hair and pulling me back when I walk.
My kids close their eyes, spread their arms and fly with it, until they fall to the ground laughing.
When I pray, I say thee and thou and grant me this, give me that.
My kids say, "Hi God! Thanks for my toys and my friends. Please keep the bad dreams away tonight. Sorry, I don't want to go to Heaven yet. I would miss my Mommy and Daddy."
When I see a mud puddle I step around it. I see muddy shoes and dirty carpets.
My kids sit in it. They see dams to build, rivers to cross, and worms to play with.
I wonder if we are given kids to teach or to learn from? No wonder God loves the little children! Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
I like that Annie. Thank you for taking the time to find and post it.

I think kids and us teach eachother.

When I think back when I was a kid. I do see what was probably little things to others were big things to me.:)

<quoted text>
The rationale was to declare gay marriage to be a state's rights issue and not one for the federal government.
Per the tenth amendment of the Constitution;
"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."
DOMA leaves gay marriage to be entirely an issue for each individual state to decide for itself.
It was decided the federal government would not recognize gay marriage, nor would it forbid any state from doing such, nor would it require any state to do such.
The idea behind it was to allow each state the freedom to recognize gay marriage within that state if so desired without requiring any other state to recognize said marriages against its wishes.
Where do we go from here?
.. because of DOMA, legal gay/lesbian marriages and civil unions are not recognized by the federal government and none of the benefits of marriage under federal law will apply including:

1. Social Security, veterans' and military benefits for spouses.
2. Spousal Privilege (Trials)
3. Immigration of spouse.
4. 179 tax benefits that take marital status into account including estate taxes and joint income tax returns.
5. Employee Benefits (Insurance, medical leave, bereavement, etc.)
6. Death Benefits.
7. Legal action for wrongful death, etc.
8. Crime victim recovery benefits.
9. The list goes on.

.. at one time, slavery and interracial marriage was a state right. Here is an excerpt from the Amicus Brief regarding DOMA by read by justices of the Supreme Court:

"Like the identical argument that is presently used to oppose marriage for same-sex couples, past opposition to interracial marriage regarded interracial marriage as threats to social order and the institutions of marriage and family. See Renee Romano, Race Mixing: Black-White Marriage in Postwar America 45-46 (2003). The chief argument being used to oppose same-sex marriage is a recycled
claim that was used to oppose interracial marriage and revolves around the assertion that extending marriage rights to same-sex couples risks weakening one of our most important tools for transmitting social values and maintaining social order. For interracial marriage, the social order argument relied on the premise that “the underlying assumption … that the union of a man and woman of different races did not fit the concept of marriage.”

"Identical to the interracial argument, now, those who oppose same-sex marriage point to marriage and the family as the main social device to transmit values and beliefs across generations, and argue
that value transmission can only be successfully accomplished in two-parent, mixed-gender households because marriage for same-sex couples does not fit the concept of marriage."

.. if you would like, I can PM you this portion of the brief ..

.. SCOTUS must overrule DOMA then gays/lesbians will work on winning the minds of people ..

I don't have time to educate you on this.
But you are totally wrong.
You are often wrong, but you are not dishonest. Look it up, do some research, and you will see how wrong you are.
.. if RR is sincerely interested, he can start with the Loving v. Virginia 1967 SCOTUS ruling which invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage ..

I’m not sure what you mean when you say you had to stop going over my post Sister. Maybe that you should not go to sleep while on duty. I agree that keeping watch is a watchers duty. But humans fail.
HFN
Me too...

I had to stop reading and responding to your post due to duty calls! More vital than topix land. One could hardly fall asleep while on call... it would be fair to those we care for!

But of course humans fail... I was sharing your post not white- anting it. It is one I happen to be very attached to re Jesus HFN, so I shared a quick thought before I had to go again... That way I could also share some-o-God's Love.

Then how could an unconstitutional thing like DOMA exist in law for almost 20 years?

.. gotta love some of the statements being made by SCOTUS Justices ..

Kennedy referred to DOMA as "inconsistent" because it purports to give authority to the states to define marriage while limiting recognition of those determinations.

"Comparing marriage status with types of milk," Ruth Ginsburg said, "that a gay marriage endorsed by a state, but not recognized by the federal government, could be viewed as the equivalent of "skim milk."

Sotomayor: "What gives the federal government the right to be concerned at all about the definition of marriage?"

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg also raised concerns about the law, stressing how important federal recognition is to any person who is legally married.

Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city spend a year there carry on business and make money.You do not even know what will happen tomorrow.What is your life.You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.Instead you ought to say "If it is the Lord's will we will live and do this or that."
Instead you boast and brag.All such boasting is evil.Anyone then who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it,sin.

Worth a re-post >>>Annie J<<<
Jesus & The Mud Puddle
http://morningstoryanddilbert.wordpress.com/2...

Howard  County Sheriff Jerry Marr got a disturbing call one Saturday  afternoon a few months ago. His 6-year-old grandson, Mikey, had been hit by a car while fishing in Greentown with his dad.

The father and son were near a bridge by the Kokomo Reservoir when a woman lost control of her car, slid off the bridge and hit Mikey at a rate of about 50 mph.
Sheriff Marr had seen the results of accidents like this and feared the worst. When he got to Saint Joseph Hospital, he rushed through the emergency room to find Mikey conscious and in fairly good spirits.

‘Mikey, what happened?’ Sheriff Marr asked. Mikey replied,‘Well, Papaw, I was fishin’ with Dad, and some lady runned me over, I flew into a mud puddle, and broke my fishin’ pole and I didn’t get to catch no fish!’

As it turned out, the impact propelled Mikey about 500 feet, over a few trees and an embankment and in to the middle of a mud puddle. His only injuries were to his right femur bone, which had broken in two places.

Mikey had surgery to place pins in his leg. Otherwise the boy is fine.

Since all the boy could talk about was that his fishing pole was broken, the Sheriff went out to Wal-Mart and bought him a new one while he was in surgery so he could have it when he came out.
The next day the Sheriff sat with Mikey to keep him company in the hospital. Mikey was enjoying his new fishing pole and talked about when he could go fishing again as he cast into the trash can.

When they were alone Mikey, just as matter-of-fact, said,‘Papaw, did you know Jesus is real?’

‘Well,’ the Sheriff replied, a little startled.

‘Yes, Jesus is real to all who believe in him and love him in their hearts.’

‘No,’ said Mikey.‘I mean Jesus is REALLY REAL.’
‘What do you mean?’ asked the Sheriff.

‘I know he’s real ’cause I saw him,’ said Mikey, still casting into the trash can.

‘You did ?’ said the Sheriff.

‘Yep,’ said Mikey.‘When that lady runned me over and broke my fishing pole, Jesus caught me in his arms and laid me down in the mud puddle.’

Thanx for the 'prayer' you shared with Epi too.
Very beautiful.
