I would say the guns...... You forgot the guns....... What evidence do you have. Prove her wrong after thousands of years....... You want a State Contract and divide the property when they split...... Go for it....... Marriage is a religious state of mind in the eye of the other 98% of the population.... So show us where the sacrament needs to be handled by law? Where is the freedom of thought.......

Marriage is NOT a religious state of mind....it's certainly more than that and it's NOT just about property or inheritance.......it's what the two individuals want it to be.....the State just sets the requirements for it and issues the license and certificate!!!

I thought you would show up.......... What you are suggesting is a license by the State. Good, you are coming along........ My sacrament is mine..... You can't legislate it..... I win......

Interesting, you can't win because this ISN'T a contest, it's about a right....and to disrespect the marriage of someone else because you feel threaten is rather sad.

So being gay is a right just like incest? Multiple married partners? It's what your mind wants and that makes it a right? Strap on a handgun and go to a store...... That's a right! I would not feel threaten..... Why would it be important to you to legislate my faith? Why are you so threatened that you need to emulate my beliefs? Explain......

It is June and the SCOTUS is going to rule based on my State's Challenge. This could change everything you once knew. I was looking around the world and I couldn't find any place with a better Constitution...... If we could only lower Taxes and the size of govt.....

Wow, really? When has VIOLATING a child been a right? Again, when has polygamy, polyandry or plural marriages been a right?

What Gays and Lesbians want is the RIGHT to marry the person of their choosing WITHOUT the State infringing on that right by placing UNCONSTITUTIONAL gender restrictions on it. That has NOTHING to do with the OTHER crap you mentioned!!!

You are entitled to your religious beliefs, HOWEVER you CAN'T use those beliefs as GROUNDS to discriminate in a public business, which serves the public!!!

YES ! And while we all can agree on that, we cal also ALL agree that despite all our different backgrounds, different ages, different genders, different sexualities, different races, different ethnic backgrounds, different income levels, etc., we can also ALL agree on the fact that The Obamaniac is Evil. PURE EVIL.

At least we can ALL agree on that too !:)

that's right, the guys on the money didn't have to get marriage licenses, and technically any couple of age thats straight or que er can cohabitate and pervert their plumbing whatever and the govt. has no say. Everyone should just get civil unions thru a damn lawyer. But the sheeple have been scammed into thinking they have to do the license (privilege) garbage a century ago and we hear the libtards scream for their 'marriage' " 'rights' " when it's a friggin Privilege ewe sheeple paid the govt. for - true rights don't need a privilege paper to exercise!

google- Ron Paul Get Government out of the marriage business"

It is June and SCOTUS is more than likely going to rule that the bans denying the right to marry based on gender restrictions is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, they will also more than likely overturn Section 2 of DOMA.

There is NO better place to live than in this Country and our Constitution ensures that the laws apply to EVERYONE not EVERYONE the way you want it to be.

Their behavior is a reflection of THEIR norms and mores..... It is how they think..... Why would the State infringe on that "right" as it may be unconstitutional to prohibit their behavior.... No matter the gender.... I sense a hostility that seems unhinged and dramatic...... Did I mention a public business? Should you be able to harass business owners based on THEIR beliefs? Just putting the question out there. How would the business owner know of anyone's status? Unless..... No that would never happen..........

That could apply to your line of thought....... How is the Mexican donkey shows down South....... That is someone's choice too. There are no Guarantees to the limits of Human thought....
