Long-term Pain

After reading the opinion and 1 of the dissents; this ruling is borderline fraud. It literally makes no sense; and I'm saying that as a person who thinks DOMA should go away.

As far as I can tell the ruling isn't based in the constitution but rather the personal desires of the majority. Aside from the fact that there is no equal protection clause in the 5th amendment (Boling v. Sharpe was also poorly decided), the court doesn't make a coherent argument about how it WOULD violate that clause.

For those of you happy with the opinion, don't be so short sighted. It might be good for you in result but this is a disaster for procedure and the constitution. Those that prefer a result and consequences be damned will find one day they are on the other end of that oppression.
