Gay rights lobbyists plan to use their victory at the Supreme Court to push legislation that would ensure married same-sex couples are eligible for federal benefits in all 50 states.
But the groups said their victory was incomplete because it’s not clear from the court ruling if married gay couples would lose their benefits if they move to one of the 37 states where gay marriage is illegal. That means another major lobbying battle is at hand for groups on both sides of the marriage debat
That means lobbyists for gay and civil rights groups can go on offense, which they plan to do with a campaign for the Respect for Marriage Act. The bill would fully repeal DOMA and ensure that “state of ceremony” takes precedence over “state of residence” when the government decides whether a gay couple is eligible for tax breaks, entitlement benefits and other federal programs
Now, every individualized person, group, sect, entity is guaranteed everything their little heart desires.
Gay lobbys next target:: benefits in all 50 states`
I disagree with federal benefits being paid to same sex couples.
I also believe it is a mistake for our government to rule against the will of the people to support a deviant and sinful lifestyle

I think the radical gay lobby has their sights set on attacking religion. Its later down the road, but its coming.
quote:Correct. But, they did believe greatly in liberty and a pretty big key to liberty is the right to do what one wants as a consenting adult if it doesn't infringe upon another. Alas, we have MANY MANY MANY laws that violate liberty. But, that's another thread.
Oh please. The founding fathers NEVER considered homosexuality/same sex marriage a right.
What does a pair of gays getting married do to negatively affect you in any way whatsoever?
The will of the people does not extend to an ability to single out ANY group of people for NOT being allowed what others are.

Uh, NO ONE is prevented from getting married now - in any state.
