Why The Supreme Court Must Strike Down DOMA

  1. Corporations, per the Citizens United decision, are people.
  2. Corporations are ungendered; therefore, all of them are the same sex.
  3. Same sex unions are expressly forbidden in the Defense Of Marriage act.
  4. Any corporate merger could, therefore, be challenged and defeated.
You could say that SCOTUS could simply leave it up to the states to decide, but that would mean states decide WHICH CORPORATION gets to do business in them. Vonage could challenge ATT and wind up with all of Oregon. Sure it's a specious argument, but that's cold comfort if you're spending 3 years and millions of dollars of legal fees fighting it.
