Venezuela and those nations with authoritarian system Put us to shame in that they support<quoted text>From what I can tell through searches on the case, the Constitutionality of DOMA is still being considered by the Court, and there has, as yet, been no ruling.
If you have better information, please provide it.
I am in favor of States recognizing the right of gays to marry - however, I am not in favor of the Federal government involving itself in regulating or defining marriage, which was not a power enumerated for the Federal government in the Constitution, and therefore is the province of the States. In my opinion, DOMA should be ruled Unconstitutional, and, as 'unequal' as this opinion sounds on its face, Proposition 8, as duly voted for by the citizens of California, should stand...even though I completely disagree with the law itself.
I also realize that without the Federal government's assumption of its right to rule on interracial marriage, it would now only be legal in certain states, and that this argument would also open the door faster than anything else currently before the court, to overturning Roe V. Wade. And we all know how I feel about that one.
Isn't America GREAT!!!!
LGBT community allowing many to marry whatever their sexual orientation are... US have yet come of Modern Stone Age . M WBhHAHHAHAAA
