Posted by bad_luck on 6/21/2013 11:11:00 AM (view original):Why are you so sure that DOMA is going to be throw out when you admittedly have no idea what the issue is that may decide it?
You can't/aren't going to answer.
I'll answer for you, both ways:
Yes, that's mike's point. It's irrelevant though because regulating marriage is a legal power of the states and the Feds have to recognize it once DOMA is thrown out.
No, that's not mike's point. The entire secession topic was a non-sequitur circle jerk without a point.
DOMA and Prop 8 are two different issues.
DOMA will get tossed because the feds don't have the power to regulate marriage.
Prop 8 might
get thrown out due to standing rules. I don't know the standing rules, it's just what I've read/heard on the news.
