Same sex couple are married, legally, and recognized on both the state and federal level.
Not in all states. Only in a minority. And let's all hope it stays that way...

The qualifications are simple. The parties must be of age, able to consent, not closely related by blood, not currently married, and of the opposite sex. You're operating from the position that personal same sex intimate sexual relationships are marriage, and are considered as such by a broad consensus. Thirty state bans say other wise.
Excellent post, sir.

But coming, more every year... National recognition was a very big step.
More and more large companies are piling on, they no longer want offices in states where their employees marriages are not recognized.
The pressure is on in every direction
Politically now that a majority of voters favor same sex marriage, the speed will escalate
Not everyone wants to work for Chick a Fill
Big D lie #....Well, I've lost track. NOT "National recognition" at all. Recognized in a few. Your company playbook has you going off the deep end.
"More and more large companies are piling on" in spite of the fact that they have NO business engaing in politics and tiiping the scales through the manipulation of jobs and money. they are not in existence to control national policy.
"The pressure is on in every direction" from corporate entities that have no place doing so.
"a majority of voters favor same sex marriage" is a LIE! I have told you, you liar, that I can disporve what your little black book tells you to say. Why won't you answer my challenge? You know that you are lying and depending upon propagandist trollsites to further your lies. It is why you ignore my offer. Never once have you even addressed my offer. Even acknowledged it. We both know that you lie.
well

3) Not as much as I have, I'll wager.
4) No, obviously. you have no faith, except in your corporation, and their total control of you.
5) you are making up so much stuff, I'm surprised that you will even post in here, at all.
6) They exist in a minority of states, much to the chagrin of the majority of the population.
I can't stand a liar or a thief. and, you are both. you lie when you post in here, and you even stole from your own kids.
You're an owned, propagandist tool.

Except for plural marriages.

Then you would recognize plural marriage/polygamy is recognized by many religions around the world.
<quoted text>
So you use secularism as your excuse for the kind of hatred and spite you display here.
<quoted text>
Plural marriages do exist, and in more cultures and times than SSM. Even in this country, albeit without legal recognition, and in some places subject to criminal sanction. Yet you ignore the very reality of plural marriage families, as though they are not worthy of your respect, due in part for,your hatred of all things religious.No SIR, it is YOU, who knows nothing about marriage. You treat SSM as a secular sacred cow, and belittle those who would dare oppose such a fundamental social change, as if the only opposition could be borne of "bigotry". A "bigotry" that only you and others who share such a view are allowed to define. I suggest you examine your true motivations for belittling individuals who object to the rejection of conjugal marriage in several states, and the efforts by some to extend that rejection nationwide.
Amen!
And, So Mote It Be..

Nor does it need to be. I should remind you SIR, that marriage, the legally recognized union of husband and wife is just that. A union of both sexes. Recognition of marriage contains within it, the understanding of marriage as a sexual union, one that can and does, create new life. Are you not familiar with such terms as"consummation", "marital relations", and "presumption of paternity" , words that reference the male female sexual union?
No SIR the nation loses when we reject the understanding of marriage as a monogamous conjugal union. Where is the line drawn? Are you willing to accept other alternative forms of marriage, such as plural marriage, which is far older and has been, and is, practiced in far more times and places than SSM, in the name of Orwellian "marriage equality"?
