    Of the minority in this country. Time for LGBT to stop paying taxes. By god, if we don't get all of the rights of heteros, why the hell should we accept all of the responsibilities?

    •  Escrow Perhaps? Class Action? Gay Secession: No (1+ / 0-)

      I thought the court would strike 8 down. Question, are there appeal possibilities?

      Lies at the top cause murder and misery at the bottom. Freedom should be a universal birthright.

      •  State vs. US Constitution (0+ / 0-)

        If an article of a state constitution violates the US constitution, the supreme law of the land, that article is invalid.  If, by defining marriage to exclude certain people, and thereby excluding them from state benefits, the California Constitution violates the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution, that provision of the California Constitution is invalid.

        Personally, I have no doubts about what the SCOTUS would decide.
