One does not need the state to "form stable, committed partnerships". No one is demanding gays not marry, or marry. It's a matter of what marriage is, and why it's defined they way it is.
...
No, one does not need state recognition to form a committed relationship, but one DOES need state recognition to gain the rights and privileges that are automatically part of the committed relationship called "marriage". Now, I can certainly agree that it IS a matter of the way marriage is defined. As I said above, your church gets to define its rituals in whatever manner it chooses. However, when it comes to the government, ALL citizens MUST be given equal access to the laws, rights and privileges of our society, because that is what our Constitution demands.

So who's lying here? The same right has always existed. There are some who do not wish to exercise it the same way, as any other man or woman.
The only one lying here is you. Yet again. It is getting rather tiresome.

I have the right to marry the person that I love and for whom I feel a sexual attraction. Love does not even need to be a part of it. I can marry anyone I choose, as long as we are both consenting adults, etc, etc, etc.

Until the state starts telling people who they will marry, based on breeding concerns, the state MUST allow ALL citizens the right to pick the person that they wish. Gender is NOT a valid grounds for discrimination.

Ok I assume you are gay, now don't you lie, where in the consitution does it say you can not marry?
Minor point, but I am straight...

Major point, the Constitution REQUIRES that ALL people have equal access to the laws of the land. Since marriage is part of that body of laws, gays must have the right to marry just like straights do - and that includes the person of their choice.

You can marry a few women if they'll have you, and the state not need be involved. However if you wish to legally marry, you must abide by the state rules, and requirements.
Until the state starts telling people who they will marry, based on breeding concerns, the state MUST allow ALL citizens the right to pick the person that they wish.
Oh so you can marry your sister?
Gender is NOT a valid grounds for discrimination.
Exactly, no legally sanctioned gender segregation in marriage. Insist on both genders being included.

Why do you deliberately try to invert the simple facts?
I ask you the same.
Yes, a religion gets to determine for itself who qualifies to use that religion as a basis for any religious ritual. But your church does NOT get to define any of that for my church, and vice versa.
Beyond that, people DO NOT get to vote away the civil rights of others.
Did you actually read what I wrote AND understand it?
Pietro Armando wrote:
No but one can vote on how a significant social, cultural, historical, and/or religious institution, is legally defined. Last I knew the civil right to marry was based on the male female understanding of marriage and applied to all men and women equally.
And no, the civil right to marry is based on two people forming a union that involves numerous rights and privilages that are not available in other manner.
That's so clever....did you think that up yourself?
. The gender of those people is of no concern of yours.
It is to the state if those people choose to legally marry, and to the people who voted on what definition of legal marriage should either be maintained, or replaced.
If the courts attempt to take away any person's or group's civil rights, there must be a COMPELLING state intrest in so doing. Compelling as in - others will be injured in some demonstable manner. If the courts operate in any other manner, they are guilty of judicial malfesiance.
Helllllooooooo.....McFly...no civil right was taken away. The right to marry, enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, valid on all fifty states, is available to ALL MEN AND WOMEN.

Republicans need to stop hurting our country because they are in a bizarre state of denial over the Affordable Care Act, also know as Obamacare. As they stamp their feet and rant, millions of Americans have started the process of finally obtaining health insurance -- but the government is in a massive shutdown.
Neither of the two parties knows much about anything, they both suck and are bad for this country. Obammy and his brown nosers don't know any more about the plan than any one else and they wrote it. Have you seen the application? they have designated deferent levels of coverage, it's not a blanket affordable plan for America as they sold it to be, even the poor, who this plan was custome made for will have to qualify. Why do you think the politicians themselves wont use this plan, because it has too many qualifing demands and they want to continue see the doctors of their choice. So in this case the Demos will be holding Americans as hostage once again the Republicans are only trying to prevent that in this case.

Chicken Mac Nuggets contain: about half muscle, with the rest a mix of fat, blood vessels and nerves.

Close inspection revealed cells that line the skin and internal organs of the bird.

Everything else from a chicken but the cluck.

Ok fine. Marry the person of their choice in this case means of any origin, ethnisity, color, or race. Gays have that right too. I think what the cult really wants is to do is make an amendment to the constiution to add the words SS. In that case the American people should have the right to VOTE on such an amendment, put it to the CITIZENS of this nation. Would you agree to that? let the chip fall as they may done deal no more crying

The only way to end this arguement is to add into the constitution "and SS people".
