I can see now that you will never understand this, since you cannot see past the politics.<quoted text>Because it's like Roe vs. Wade. It also was a state issue, but the only way the libs can win it to surpass the constitition with liberal votes and judication and by pass congress, the constitution and state law.
How does one "surpass" the constitution? I think you better put down the thesaurus and stick to words you know.
BTW, "judication" is not even a word.
"Bypass" is one word, not two.
Congress is subject to the Constitution.
States, depending on the issue, are also subject to it. DP and EP always apply, at least, which is something you don't seem to get.
State laws on marriage have to meet the requirements of due process and equal protection.
This is why, despite all your bleating, you will eventually run out of excuses for your secret homosexual fiancee, because gay marriage will, sooner or later, be legal in all US jurisdictions.
Because the justifications for maintaining the ban do not pass Constitutional muster. That's why.
