And of course, totally by coincidence, What- difference-does-it-make-Hillary announced last week without cosulting Catarrh-face,that she suppports gay marriage as well.
Well, it aeems like this gay marriage fun and frivolity that is going on will probably become federal law, but only if Catarrh-face and Hulllary have separate sleeping arrangments, the Rose Garden would make a very inviting budoir for Mr. Cohiba,If I do say so myself.
You left out disbarred lawyer.
WHAT ABOUT ABORTION? The definition of when life begins has been imposed upon the states by the federal government? The definition was locked in stone by SCOTUS...

“5 Justices Skeptical of Ban on Benefits to Gay Spouses”
So why stop there? Why does one have to be “married”? Under whose morality is marriage even a thing?
Benefits should be given to girlfriends/boyfriends, hook-ups, and “baby mamas” too! Hell even good friends are kinda like being married, isn’t it???
I’m starting to think that they’re right. This is the FedGov stepping on a state’s right to define its own institutions.
I don’t want Washington telling Wisconsin it has to issue a certain number of gun licenses, New York that it must allow no-fault divorce or Missouri that front license plates must be mandatory.
It does raise the issue of how states will handle the marriages they don’t recognize when people move. I’m wondering how this was handled back in the 1950s and 1960s with interracial marriages? I ask not to equate them but because that’s the most recent time I can think of for different recognition of marriages across state lines.
Regarding benefits, one of Ronald Reagan’s objections to social security was that the beneficiary could not choose who could receive payments after death. It was and is limited to a spouse. He believed that since it was your money, you paid for it you should be able to choose, especially if you were unmarried or widowed.
If Kennedy says it should be left up to the states then wouldn’t that make Prop 8 legal?
Left out pathological liar.
