  •  That might work (0+ / 0-)

    A little, anyway.  However, since the Federal government recognizes marriages, in a perfect world they will be required to recognize ALL marriages.

    In a perfect world--I honestly can't estimate how Roberts and the Supremes are going to vote.

    Since states already also acknowledge other states' marriages in almost all cases (first cousin marriage being one example I can think of that's patchy), they should be forced to do so here as well since the inbreeding argument certainly doesn't apply.  Although they can feel free to not recognize gay marriages between first cousins, if they like.

    •  I kind of have a problem with the 1st cousin (0+ / 0-)

      thing.

      It isn't illegal to boink and impregnate your first cousin. It is only illegal to marry her once you have. How, exactly, is that protecting the gene pool?

    •  You mean the Full Faith and Credit clause (0+ / 0-)

      which means that once marriage equality is federal law states will have to recognize such marriages from other states so the worst case is you may have to go out of state to get married in the first place?

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
