    No, Roberts has proven he understands what is Constitutional and what is not.

    Not really. By his logic if the government mandate you buy paint or else pay a tax then the government can tell Home Depot what paint they can offer and at what cost and that women don't have to pay for pink paint

    This is interesting.

    DOMA will probably be struck down. It was pretty much like the "flag burning" amendments. Congress knew it was unconstitutional when they passed it, the only amazing thing was that it took this long for a court challenge to work its way through the courts.

    Full Faith and Credit Clause. If one state recongizes gay marriage, the other 49 have to recognize marriages performed there, and so do the Feds.

    Perry v. Hollingsworth is the more interesting case, because I really do think that Judge Walker overstepped his bounds by finding a right to gay marriage in the 14th Amendment (the one stop shop for Judges who like to legislate from the bench.) Even the 9th Circuit, notoriously liberal, had to reel him in a bit, limiting his finding to just California.

    Gun rights are explicit in the constitution, m arriage let alone gay marriage is not. So the case for CCW permits and FFC is even stronger.

    These right wingers hate the gays the most.

    Or do they?

    There are so many groups they hate, it's hard to keep track. In fact, it's probably easier to say they hate everyone not white, American Christian and ignorant.
