It is all a matter of time now, recognized in all 50 states by the federal government and more and more individual states every year.

I see your first point as being akin to saying "why should we punish illegals for not being born American". Preposterous, if you ask me. the answer to that would be "That's the way it worked out".
your second point is a mere word game, Validate, legalize, it matters not. This is not about playing word games, which is an extension of a little ploy I caught on the radio the other day. A lawyer was talking about "defending SSM", which was a ploy. SSM has never existed , until now. It has not been an enumerated right. It's not being defended, it's being pushed. It's your crowd that is slanted in posturing. It's a sales job, and most of us see no compelling need to buy it.
As to alluding, I offer no red herrings, and to dismiss any point that i have made is the evil and shameful act. After all, your take is "The needs of the SSM crowd make anybody elses interpretations and feeling irrelevant. Exactly what you accuse us of doing. And if the game is to dismiss the other side and to trivialize the concerns of a certain segment, then the majority should hold sway. And that is us, the NON-SSM crowd. Your sides propaganda job hasn't fooled anyone.
The ones who are "superior intellectually and ethically." are the ones who recognize that SSM is not a valid standard upon which to launch the "dash for the cash".

Randy, the other side of fear is freedom.
.
Here is the simplest way of putting it: Denying a couple the right to marry for the sole reason that they are gay is hurtful and benefits no-one.
.
I think you may have embodied your anti-gay stance too deeply for me to reach.

It is obvious that you have a good heart, but you have been led down the primrose path.
Marriage is the civil union/spiritual union of one man and one woman.
SScouples can never be married. SScouples can have a civil union, and I suppose they have a spiritual union, but they will never have a one man/one woman relationship.
Perhaps another name would better describe the SS civil union.
Garriage perhaps?
Leave the term "marriage" for what it has been forever. The civil union of one man and one woman........and go ahead and have all of the SS civil unions you desire.

Thanks, I think ;-)

So, I posit that denying a couple the right to marry for the sole reason that they are gay is hurtful and benefits no-one.

Do you agree with this statement? If not, which part do you not agree with?

No thank you. The federal government doesn't recognize civil unions.

SS couples are married. FYI.... gay couples have been legally marrying for 10 years now. you live in an alternate reality, please post on their forum.

A Wyoming lawmaker is pushing to allow use of the firing squad to execute condemned state inmates if constitutional problems or other issues ever prevented the state from using lethal injection.
