Actually the denial of federal recognication of same sex marriages in states where they are legal, has real consequences. Such as inherentence taxes that kick in. ONe recent example with an elderly woman who actually got engaged to the woman she eventually married when it because legal in her state ended up paying hundreds of thousands of dollars more in estate taxes. By the way, they got engaged back in the 1960s. They were hardly a "threat" to marriage that some believe.

Homos already HAVE -equal- right to marriage;
they can marry another person of the opposite sex the same as any other person.
That IS the definition of "marriage";man-woman,it's been that way for several thousand years.

This is all about the REDEFINITION of "marriage" to be something it's never been,and thus FORCING other states to recognize the abomination via Article IV,sec 1.
Homos are seeking SPECIAL rights and the reordering of US society to suit their agenda and mental illness.

Of course,some people IGNORE the second part of Article IV,sec 1;
"and the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts,Records,and Proceedings shall be proved,and the Effect thereof."
Congress "prescribed the manner" by enacting DOMA.
THAT alone allows DOMA to be Constitutional.

Congress is SPECIFICALLY given the power to decide,and they did.

The homos that are out front on their marriage rights are mainly working to force the rest of us to accept their rights (special) & accept their deviant life style as normal. As we slouch toward Gomorrah. The progressives are winning.

You do understand that to everyone outside the GOP bubble your argument is moronic sophistry right? And you wonder why you are losing the debate...

This is part two of a column on the state of Republicanism and how they should move forward.

In 1973, the Supreme Court issued one of their worst rulings ever in Roe v. Wade. Largely made from “whole cloth,” the ruling has started a 40-year fight over abortion that unnecessarily has divided this country. If Republican principles were in place on this issue, then there would be a heated discussion; but the core of the fight would be defused and the issue would be handled at the state level where it properly belongs and where other issues should be handled.
