    A federal appeals court in New York has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.


    The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the Act's Section 3, which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex marriages, violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution. The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston issued a similar ruling in May.

    I don't think black people should be allowed to marry white people. [/1957]

    Good. Homos should be able to get married and join the rest of us in (misery) bliss.

    0 star post. No creativity. This is said anytime and anywhere gay marriage is brought up, without fail.

    WGAS WGAF. Why the FUCK are we paying to have these stupid matters decided? Between this and the large beverage ban you would assume ALL the other problems are completely fixed and we've run out of issues to discuss in congress.

    We need a fucking revolution. :suicide:

    I fucking HATE every single time our country fights over something based on FUCKING RELIGION. We are NOT a fucking religious country. I don't care if your religion calls for you to shove chickens up your cunt while you sing the them to the "Love Boat", it holds as much legal merit as Catholicism or any other ism. NONE.

    Separation of Church and State you fucking assholes. I hope the next time these "politicians" speak to "God" to get his advice and council he tells them to fuck off.
