Did you even read the thread BEFORE you posted?
BL was claiming 11 states legalized gay marriage. I pointed out that the Feds don't recognize it. That sometimes states do dumb ****(like secede). And the Feds "correct" the problem.
How ******* stupid are you?
Yikes. Again...a basic government class would do you some good.
The states have the power to regulate marriage, not the feds. The feds can't "correct" this, which is why DOMA is going to be tossed next week.
In the 1800's the states didn't have any legal basis for secession (like they do
regarding their marriage laws) so they had to go to war to attempt it. Had it been legal, they would have done it without war.
and, LOL again
. Secession isn't legal:
the court further held that the Constitution did not permit states to unilaterally secede from the United States, and that the ordinances of secession, and all the acts of the legislatures within seceding states intended to give effect to such ordinances, were "absolutely null".
