    Wrong on both counts. Gay is nothing but a sexual perversion and a CHOICE!!! Belongs in the bedroom period. Marriage is only right between a man and woman. the way it is supposed to be. Gay is sick.

    Note the rhetorical sleight-of-hand: their reason for finding DOMA unconstitutional is because historically the federal government has always recognized legal marriages of the states. But while the states have never had true uniformity in marriage laws (marriageable age comes to mind), there has always been uniformity with regards to what a marriage is defined as. Even when DOMA was passed, there weren't states with gay marriage, and maybe with the exception of one or two states, no states had any domestic partnerships or civil unions, either.

    There's no constitutional mandate that the federal government recognize certain marriages, just like, as the court argues, there's no mandate that the states recognize a particular form of marriage. Their basing the constitutionality of DOMA on what has tended to be the case, not what is required to be the case.
