So if the Supreme Court says one thing...and congress another...
According to this story on foxnews, http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,126623,00.html, the House is trying to pass a bill that will strip courts of their ability to recognize and enforce the laws of another state. Example: A Gay Couple (A) gets married in Massachusetts (B) and moves to Florida (C) where they try to have their marriage recognized by their new state (A+B+C=freaked out Republicans). With this new law, courts will not have the ability to order the recognition of the union if it was sanctioned elsewhere. Hmmmm....last time I checked, there was something called "Separation of Powers." If the Republicans keep trying to act like they want to rewrite the Constitution, maybe they should just cut the bull and just announce that they want to do just that.
