Marriage has always been gender diverse; same sex marriage introduces a new standard of gender segregation to marriage. Male/female marriage predates our Constitution, our languages and our religions. Be conservative, keep marriage as is, gender integrated marriage is superior to gender apartheid marriage.

Traditions or religions or whatever, marriage remains, by your thought system, Unconstitutional.

Segregation and apartheid are ways of keeping people apart and denying equal treatment under the law.

Marriage equality brings people together and expands equal treatment. It is the opposite of segregation and apartheid.

Think about it; same sex marriage is gender segregation marriage. A new standard of gender apartheid brought to marriage, changing that institution for everyone.
What they want is ersatz equality, because anyone with common sense knows men and women are different.
No Way

Segregation connotes force. There is nothing forced.

There is only marriage, and the parties who wish to enter into it. The sex of the parties is legally irrelevant.

They force a new standard of gender segregation marriage without the consent of the governed. Same sex marriage is unconstitutional.
