If marriage is a civil right, what other civil rights do you need a license for?
The right to bear arms.

Anything else we can clear up for you?

Isn't it amazing how often the definition of marriage changes in this thread?
Funny, I can't see how it been redefined even once. It's defined as a union, a ceremony and an institution. That doesn't change when gays enter into it.

Please, go peddle your imaginary definition change to the sheeple.

I don't doubt that.
The difference is my marriage is real.
And then the differences just keep going on and on.
Sorry, but my marriage is "REAL" too........and it is as "REAL" as the marriages of my aunt and uncle, both of my sister's and brother-in-laws and my mom's and step-dad's:-)

And the only difference is that their spouse is someone of the opposite-sex......otherwise THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!!!

I am also straight. I am also married. I recognize RnL's marriage to be as real as yours.
The difference is, the courts in RnL's state agree.
Your opinion ends there.
Thank you for this post......some just can't grasp the reality of things!!!

I agree with you. Marriage discrimination is based upon hatred and false stereotypes.

Obama changed nothing, he did nothing. Just lip service, trading poor black voters for rich white voters:

1996:“I favor legalizing same-sex marriages” was an answer included on a signed questionnaire to a Chicago gay community newspaper when Mr. Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. In 2011, a White House aide said someone else filled it out.

2004: As a U.S. Senate candidate, Mr. Obama tells Chicago public television “marriage is between a man and a woman.” In the same interview, Mr. Obama said he wanted to ensure gays and lesbians have “the rights of citizenship” but noted,“I don’t think marriage is a civil right.”

2008: Mr. Obama, running for president, again says marriage should be limited to unions between a man and a woman.“For me as a Christian, it’s also a sacred union… God’s in the mix,” he says in an interview with the Rev. Rick Warren, a leading evangelical minister.

2010: After signing the repeal of a ban on gays openly serving in the military, Mr. Obama tells reporters that “my feelings are constantly evolving” on gay marriage.

2011:“I’m still working on it,” Mr. Obama tells ABC News when asked if he would change his mind on gay marriage before the 2012 election.

2012:“I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Mr. Obama tells an interviewer for ABC.

so what, he stated his opinion. I see this as a non-issue and at the bottom of the list for his platform. He will focus on the economy and other stuff 1st. Watch when the debates come up. I can't wait for that!
