There's a very slippery slope lined with banana peels waiting to get stepped on here.
1) The Attorney General of New York has determined them to be illegal. The people of California voted to define marriage as a man and a woman. Seems pretty clear to those of us who's mind's are clouded from bong water.

2) Oh no, not the slippery slop arguement? I thought they it was wrong. Get him Lur.

Didn't the DoM Act already cover that? It says that state may legalize gay marriage within it's own borders. But states would not be obligated to recognize such marriages performed in another state.

So in fact, Congress does allow a state to allow same sex marriage, and also allows states to not recognize that marriage.

ps. thanx for making me the lead really, real axis of evil state. I'm honored.
