RE: SCOTUS pusses out on gay marriage.
I'm sure the conservative judges want to put it off...


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

The thing is, it's illegal for the Federal government to say who the states can give licenses to. (Like marriage)

So, there's not much they can do, is there?

No, they can declare laws that discriminate against citizens unconstitutional.

It appears they don't want to hear those cases, because of the ripple effect.

Some of the comments are priceless!

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

But they can say who you can't not give them to.

Until they can replace a liberal with another conservative.

I agree...it's such a non issue

That's the problem, many states want to ban gay marriage or pass laws saying marriage is between men and women only.

There are other problems, in states where gay marriage is allowed, if the couple moves or resides in another state where gay marriage isn't accepted, they can't get divorced.

At least as of last year, they can file a joint IRS return so there's that.

Public sentiment is moving very quickly on this, maybe the SCOTUS thinks if they punt the issue just a bit further down the line the problem will solve itself and they will just have to do clean up.
