Stop it Pete......you know that David was discussing the right to marry for the individual who is part of a "COUPLE"........sing le folks AREN'T getting married to themselves that I'm aware of!!!<quoted text>
There's a "same sex couples right to marry"? The right to marry is an individual right of men and and women to enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, valid in all fifty states. By your reasoning, not only is there a "couple's right" but it includes an obligation on the part of the state to redefine marriage in order to justify said couple's right.
So those men and women who marry, enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, are first class citizens? So be a first class citizen. Marry like any other man or woman.
Exactly Pete, the right of an INDIVIDUAL man to marry either an INDIVIDUAL woman or another INDIVIDUAL man....to live together in a legally recognized union of either husband and wife or husband and husband in ALL 50 States, if that's what the "COUPLE" decides to do!!!
No Pete, those men and women who opt to enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife are NOT first class Citizens, they are just Citizens, but folks like you and others want to treat the legally recognized union of either husband and husband or wife and wife as SOMETHING other than what it is.....a legal marriage entered into by 2 American or Naturalized Citizens protected under both the Due Process and Equal Protection Amendment!!!
Just so ya know Pete, I am a FIRST CLASS AMERICAN CITIZEN who EXERCISED my right to marry the other non-related, consenting adult over the age of 18, who also EXERCISED her right to marry me, who is NOT related to her, a consenting adult over the age of 18......we have been legally recognized as wife and wife NOT only in the State we reside in and married in, but we are ALSO recognized as wife and wife at the federal level regardless of what State we reside in!!!
I know you WON'T grasp this post and will try and make some sarcastic comment or re-post some other nonsense that you believe.......but in reality.....you might want to read the ruling from the Federal Judge out of Ohio........he had harsh words for people like you!!!
