Posted by bad_luck on 6/20/2013 6:05:00 PM (view original):Yeah, that's how I recalled it. You ran with something you made up in your tiny little head.

If you can't understand things, that's on you. No one else. Just you.

My point was, and still is, just because a state does something, the Feds don't have to recognize it.
Put 1 and 1 together, you ******* rocket surgeon.
If the states have the constitutional authority to do something and the Feds don't, the Feds have to go along with it. That applies to marriage.
Which is why DOMA gets tossed next week.
If states have the right to define marriage, why is Prop 8 being challenged?
Hasn't the State of California defined marriage as "one man / one woman"?
How can you defend state's right's to define marriage as they see fit, but at the same time, say "except for California"?
Isn't that hypocritical?
