[VIDEO]: Students ridicule DOMA supporters as ‘hideous’ and ‘disgusting’ outside Supreme Court
Gay marriage supporters ridiculed supporters of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8 outside the Supreme Court in Washington D.C., on Wednesday morning, calling their views “disgusting.”
“I’m sorry but that’s hideous, it’s disgusting,” a student told Campus Reform. “[I] feel nothing for them at all. I don’t feel bad that they are upset."
“It’s not a meeting of the flat world society,” admonished another student. “It’s 2013.”

“I would just tell them to sit in it, because we’re a lot more powerful than they are and if they bother to fight back, we’ll come back twice as strong,” said one student who said he was from New York University. “Sit down, I’d tell them to sit down.”
Many also equated the outcome of the case with that of previous civil rights cases.
“I think they’ll survive,” another student said. “I mean, people survived after Loving vs. Virginia and Brown vs. Board of Education, so I think they’ll get through it. So, they can relax.”
