I fully expect that the POTUS will declare both DOMA and prop 8 unconstitutional and that homosexual marriage will be the law of the land with all states forced to recognize homosexual marriage as equal to heterosexual marriage
this will also make same sex spouses eligible for benefits of federally employed spouses...including the military
ladies and gentleman the financial benefits have been the goal all along
Oh, he'll go much further than that. He'll have the "Justice" department sue companies for discrimination if they don't hire "enough" gay people.
My prediction: (1) Proposition 8 will be upheld, 5-4, with both Roberts and Kennedy in the majority (i.e., no constitutional right to gay marriage), but (2) DOMA will be held unconstitutional, also by a 5-4 vote (Kennedy in the majority, Roberts dissenting) on the ground that the federal government must recognize as legally married any couple who are legally married under the laws of their home state. Kennedy will justify his switch by saying the DOMA case presents a states-rights issue.
The financial aspect is a large part of it.
But another large part of it is the further destruction of traditional American and Judeo-Christian morality.
The statists hate religion and especially Christianity.
In this, many of the homosexuals are the pawns of the hardcore statists that are using the homosexual ‘cause’ to further the destruction of America. Some are aware, some are not.
Regardless, the issue is another bullet in the chest of America.
If this passes, polygamists will have a case. So will males who want to marry male cousins and brothers, and females who want to female cousins and sisters.
Remember that their argument is flawed. Before same-sex marriage, we ALL lived with the same restrictions when it came to marriage. Heterosexuals could only marry people of the opposite sex and who were legally able and consented.
Homosexuals have not been barred from marriage and they were under the same ‘rights’ and ‘restrictions’ as everyone else.
Now they are asking for EXTRA rights. In addition to being able to marry members of the opposite sex, they want to be able to marry people of the same sex.
They claim this will not cause a slippery slope.
But if there are no restrictions on marriage, then there are NO restrictions on marriage.
The homosexuals want the finances, yes, but they approach homosexual ‘rights’ the same way Obammie the Commie approaches the economy: they both want to punish the living hell out of their opponents. Winning is not enough. They want to bash our heads into the sidewalk like the drug-dealing gang-baning punk Trayvon did to Zimmerman.
And they want US to apologize to THEM for ever having opposed them.
“I fully expect that the POTUS will declare both DOMA and prop 8 unconstitutional ...”
I assume you mean SCOTUS rather than POTUS?
