And you don't think acknowledging a legal SSM in another state isn't the next step for legalization?
We both know this is just a legal dance with an ultimate goal of forcing states to legalize SSM. No need for us to dance around that dance. Do you disagree?
I don't think that acknowledging that a couple has a legal marriage in another state is the next step towards anything.
Hypothetical couple Bill and Mike are married in California. That marriage is legal and valid in CA. That's a fact.
No one is forcing any state to do anything. I think, ultimately, all states will allow gay marriage. But this has nothing to do with that.
