Yeah, me too. I think it was you pointed out below that some nine states have legalized same-sex marriage. Why, there must be several MILLION heterosexual marriages suffering the resultant torture. They must be falling like flies! Surely the folks at Town Hall have amassed testimonials?

Well, for one thing, thier status with the federal government is not the same

This week the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on two of the most critical cases of our time. On Tuesday, March 26, attorneys will make the pitch both for and against California’s Proposition 8. This, of course, is the Golden State’s pro-marriage amendment. It maintained the timeless definition of natural marriage as between man and wife.

Then, on Wednesday, March 27, the high court will consider the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), passed in 1996 with overwhelming bipartisan support and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton. It, likewise, secured the definition of legitimate marriage...
