With that being said, I could see the criminal portion of this case being unconstitutional yet see the Supreme Court upholding Virginia being able to refuse to recognize the marriage as valid.

    I believe that we will see a lot of states refusing to recognize gay marriages even if they were performed in states that do recognize it. Either way, i still don't think the federal government our supreme court should intervene either way.

    Thank you for being honest. Though I must say that if you don't think the federal government should have the power to ensure it's citizens aren't being discriminated by an utterly racist local law, we really don't have much common ground to build on.

    I do think that they have the power to ensure its citizens aren't being discriminated against, however that power is limited to specific, named situations. I don't think that power should be expanded because the situation is horrible. The Lovings did have the opportunity to move to DC and stay there. Please understand that I am disgusted by the discrimination but two wrongs do not make a right.
