Does not conflict with the true meaning of "conservative." They are being Constitutionalistic by striking it down.

Ironic that the lone dissent was a Clinton appointee who thought such an important issue should be left to the states/people to decide.

I guess he didn't realize that the state DID decide.

DOMA is getting pretty good at going down, eh?

Think it might actually have been written by Congressional pages?

On a related issue-

New polling out of Maryland shows the marriage bill leading 52-48. Way too close for comfort.

Well, after they vote on this I certainly hope they vote on whether to allow Hindu people and Buddhist people should be allowed to marry because THEY certanly aren't leading a Christian lifestyle.
