Horray states' rights!
Good. Marriage's sanctity was lost long ago when divorce became a common theme
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Hopefully I'll be dead before I see a state I live in adopt this practice.

Good decision. Absolutely unconstitutional.
doma isnt really about letting gays marry its about allowing the couples married in states that already allow gay marriage to receive federal benefits like taxes etc. If your state doesnt allow gay marriage it doesnt change anything.
The supreme court also dismissed the prop 8 case which means that gay marriage can resume in California but it doesnt affect other states
As a liberal, I agree with you on this
That's irrelevant to the legal issue. No church has to do anything as a result of this. Heck, churches don't even have to recognize interracial marriages if they don't want.
It affects other states' recognition of marriage licenses.
Each church can decide for itself whether to recognize same sex marriage. And each person can decide which church to join. DOMA had nothing to do with that. It was an overreach by the federal government and it was discriminatory. And it was unconstitutional as a result.

I don't really know anyone that is against this ruling. Even my most conservative friends recognize that DOMA should have been struck down.
where is Jeff?
It'll be fun when/if he makes his way into this thread.
Combing the Blaze for his response IMO

I've gone from conservative to libertarian over the years. The federal government needs to shrink and stay out of people's lives except for when it's absolutely necessary. And it needs to treat everyone equally. It's usually inefficient and often corrupt and it should stop trying to control how people live their lives.
And he has every right to do that. This is a free country. If you want to be an asshat, you have every right to be an asshat. But the federal government doesn't. It needs to limit itself to the role provided for it in the Constitution and it needs to treat everyone equally.
Now get off my lawn!
All we've done is taken a sharpie to the dictionary and erased what the word marriage means.
Now it's simply a word with no inherent meaning. It's just whatever you want to make of it.
Postmodern deconstructionism at its finest.
SODOM AND GOMORRAH HERE WE COME!
Absolutely. The hearings on the NSA are a joke. The Republicans are as bad as the Democrats. Both sides are running interference for the NSA. Don't tell me you are building a massive collection center to house every phone call and email but you don't have the technical capability to read those emails and listen to those phone calls at the flip of a switch. Of course you do. That's the whole point of collecting the data. And no, I don't trust the government to handle that information secrectly and protect it and to not abuse the capability. History is rife with scandals in which people within the government have done so.
