Retread what I wrote Liddie, no mention of the bible and civil law.<quoted text>
The bible is utterly irrelevant to a discussion of civil law. Read the first amendment.
Exactly, treat men as men, and women as women. So simple.I agree, one wonders why there is such resistance to letting it do so?
You indicate no reason, and the compelling state interest in sanctioning such lack of reasoning, that prohibits a man from marrying, entering into a legally recognized union of husband and wife. There's no compelling state reason, or constitutional justification for treating a man any different from any other man in regards to this issue.No, Pietro, their rights are, in many jurisdictions, expressly denied. You have yet to indicate any compelling state interest served by denying same sex couples the right to marry that would render such a restriction constitutional.
Or quote the Declaration of Independence.One must believe in creationism for this to be applicable.
True, but, for example, if some people are born blind, and are still blind as an adult, the law does not require them to be equally to adults who can see, and thus are issued a drivers license.The reality remains that all men are not created equal, they are not born equal, and the only means to ensure any measure of equality is to enforce it by law.
Our Republic is also injured when we fail to acknowledge distinctions within our society, and attempt to render all things equally the same.When we fail to live up to this civic promise of legal equality, our Republic is injured.
