“impose SSM on all the states via the Full Faith & Credit Clause of the Constitution”

Section 2 of DOMA was not struck down.

Kennedy wrote that the recognition of marriage should be left to the ‘sovereign power’ of the states.

No state can be forced to recognize gay marriages from another state.

All states will come to recognize families from other states, and families of GI’s and federal employees living in their state.

Ohhhhh yes they can, through the "full faith and credit" provision of the Constitution, which has been the LGBT strategy all along---get it legalized in a couple of liberal states, and then use the federal courts to impose it on the rest of the country.

“Justice Kennedy insists that the decision on Section 3 does not touch Section 2: It does not compel any State to recognize same-sex marriage. But as Justice Scalia quipped in dissent, that claim falls into the list of “bald, unreasoned disclaimer[s].” Kennedy’s opinion will be hauled out in the cases to come to argue that the State has no justified ground for refusing to accept same-sex marriage in its own laws, or crediting the same marriages coming in from other states.”

....unless it's California?

Yes I know Kennedy "crossed over," but the Court didn't.
