Actually those critters do possess a greater capacity to enter into a contractual relationship than you.

But they still don't quite meet the bar.

<quoted text>you keep saying that same idiotic thing and i have to keep pointing out that only the govt CAN be in marriages as it is a legal binding contract religion and churches have absolutely nothing to do with marriage in any way...nothing. they may have their own rites of union but marriage is the purview of the state, always has been, always will be.
there is no nonesense at all, and the best way to deal with it is just make it legal for same sex couples to get married in the entire US.
and again you are wrong. all the gay people in SD will gain from being treated equal. as will other gay people in the US for movign this along in one more state. and all the peopl in teh US will benefit from it by strengthening marriage and getting us closer to our founding goals..
Nag Nag Nag. Constitutionally, you are correct. It has to be legal for same sex couples. This will inevitably lead to making it legal for polygamists and a number of other options as well since, constituionally, there is no option to exclude anyone. In fact, I don't think the constitution mentions marriage at all. Only things like equal protection, pursuit of happiness, etc.
