I think with the way things have been going in the last 6 months and basically picking up 6 States with Marriage Equality, SCOTUS is very much aware of what is going on and I believe DOMA Section 3 will be toast by the end of next month, maybe before.......and they could also not only add California, but 7 other States as well........but if all we get is California and Section 3 gone......it will be a huge victory!!!
We could have Illinois before the end of May as well:-)
I agree.

Seriously? Are you really THAT clueless?
Wow. Care to elaborate? I merely posted an opinion. And, I stand by it. In my OPINION a marriage should be between a male and female. Tout court.

However, IF DOMA is rejected by the SCOTUS I promise not to cry.

So you're opposed to Freedom Of Religion and the U.S. Constitution which protects that freedom ??

I just watched and heard an impassioned speech FOR marriage Equality by a REPUBLICAN senator.
Well maybe he was reading his Bible where Jesus guarentee's us that his father will accept anything any two consenting adults agree on.

Matt. 18:19-20,[GW] "I can guarantee again that if two of you agree on anything here on earth, my Father in heaven will accept it.

If two heterosexual men agree to get married then God accept it as well; "anything" is an awfully big word. I can just imagine how the pew warmers will deal with that. They will probably tell us that Jesus didn't mean what he said but that he meant anything except homosexuality, but that is a lie and lies are something the pew warmers are known for. Or they will claim it is out of context, but never bother to show us the verse in context.

And for a little icing on the cake:

Ecclesiastes 3:1, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:"

Think about that for a second, what are we being told here?

Each time the pew warmers get a law passed against the peaceful activities of consenting adults they are sneaking Christianity into the government and establishing it as the religion of the United States of America. And we all know that is wrong. Christians are abominations when they try to undermine the integrity of the Constitution which prohibits Christianity being established as the official or un-official religion of the USA.

All peaceful activities between consenting adults must become legal.

ummmm..... That when my Uncle Nicholas (Nicky The Kneebreaker) "persuades" people to pay back the money that they borrowed from his boss, Louis (Louie The Whale), that Jesus LOVES him ?!:)

I'm opposed to religion. More-so than gay marriage. I don't know what my religion, or lack thereof, has to with what I said. I don't accept the idea of god and I don't accept the idea of gay marriage. Just my opinions.

Whether you like it or not, we DO have the RIGHT to Freedom Of Religion in this country and the U.S. Constitution PROTECTS that RIGHT.

If YOU don't like religion, then I suggest that you do not engage in it. But you have no right to bar other Americans from expressing their religious beliefs.

AND, since some religious denominations allow LGBT people to marry in their houses of worship, you have NO RIGHT to prohibit that either.

From your statements above, you clearly do NOT support the U.S. Constitution nor believe in the RIGHTS it protects.

You are an EVIL person (i.e. a Democrat).

Spin it any way you like. Freedom of Religion has absolutely NOTHING to do with queer marriage. Show me where it says that same sex marriage is legal in the Constitution. I can't seem to find it.

Evil? Sounds like you are about to go against the god you are trying to hide behind.

If DOMA is upheld, which I feel it will be, then I'll be satisfied. If it falls I won't lose any sleep over it. We'll all lose tax money and federal benefits, but I'll live with what ever the SCOTUS decides. And so will you.

Marriage laws are the EXCLUSIVE purview of the states, as per the Bill Of Rights' 10th Amendment. And if a religious group, or state, decide to allow the marriage of LGBT people, that is their exclusive right to do so. And if they do, what effect does it have on your life anyway ?

I'm bored with this twisting and spinning. I'll just wait for the ruling.

Can't seem to find anything about heterosexual marriage either.

How will you lose tax money and federal benefits if the USSC declares DOMA unconstitutional? I, on the other hand, stand to gain tremendously. For example, as the primary income in a 20-year relationship which I've never, until this year, been able to call marriage, I will at last be able to file my federal tax return as "filing jointly." This means a reduction in my federal taxes of about $4000 a year.

In other words, I've been subsidizing hetero relationships for decades now by the tens of thousands of extra dollars I've had to pay in taxes. You can thank me now for my generous support of your deviant lifestyle, because it looks like my support is coming to an end and I will be treated just like everyone else. Imagine that! Being treated equally! What a novel concept.
