Gay Marriage is a Federal Issue
Marriage in general is a federal issue. Everyone including the President seems to think that you can kick the issue of gay marriage to the States. This is not right. if the Federal Government had nothing to do with marriage inter-racial couples wouldn't be allowed to be married in many states today. The biggest problem with leaving it to the states is say that someone is married in Massachusetts but they want to move to doubly illegal gay marriage state North Carolina they would lose marriage benefits conferred by the state and subsequently by the federal government. This infringes on ones ability to move about the country and become productive working citizens. This is the same reason that inter-racial marriage is recognized, not because it is a man and a woman.
