I agree and have been saying the exact same thing here for a very long time. Yet each time I point out FFC, I get severely criticized for it.<quoted text>I feel the same way. I'm tired of people saying that Article 4 Sec 1 & 2 have never been applied to marriage laws. It's about time it was.
I think all marriage equality cases should cite Article 4 as well as amendments 9 and 14. Heck they should even bring in Amendment 1 (religious freedom)
Just because FFC has never been applied to state marriage laws before, doesn't mean it isn't applicable, or that the federal courts, including SCOTUS, will not apply it in the future.
