The only bad behavior on this forum is yours; the Constitution guarantees equal rights to all, and that includes the use of the word marriage, even though that word in a gay relationship makes you tremble with fright and scares ou like a little child. LOL

The united states does recognize marriages preformed on reservations and other places so they would have to refuse to recognize them specifically. Would that make it a supreme court issue?

Yeah! The vote was close too. Oh no how awful if two people who love each other could make the committment to love and provide for each other with insurance benefits and property rights of marriage. The horror! Oh the humanity!

The legislature voted as it should, with the will of the people.

NOT one popular vote resulted in PEOPLE voting for gay marriage, the people are against gay marriage.
I'm Sorry i thought the government serves the people as a whole, not one special interest group.

Our ystem of government was designed so that the rights of the minority would not be trambled based on simple numerical majority. Sadly the rights of blacks were trampled by majority opinion for many years and there are other groups who also were not treated fairly and for not justifiable reason but we have evolved and we will continue. There is no legal or functional reason that gays should be deprived their rights.

What are you talking about??? Were does it say people have the right to change definitions of government-social institutions. Under law, federal and state Marriage is defined.

Were in the constitution does it say you can change the definition of marriage as an inalienable right??

You pro-gay supporters have a very thin argument that is falling apart, as the backlash against changing marriage is growing.

EVEN the president doesn't support gay marriage. If Obama, a liberal democrat doesn't support marriage why should a moderate ?

Marriage is not mentioned at any point in the U.S. Constitution. Contrary to popular belief, marriage, in and of itself, is not a "right".

We have rights as individuals not as "QUEER LOVERS" The constitution is being made into a mockary and twisted to self gratification just like the HOLY BIBLE has. Whats next throw the constitution out because "WE" don't want the truth and its to hard to read black and white letters without makeing it say what "WE" want!? And being Black is not a life style, they are individuals who are Americans so why would they not have rights!?

Thought I would never say it but, way to go New York!!! Its nice to se some of us still have values and morals in which our christian fore fathers established this country on.

I think the civil union compromise is the most realistic as it has much more support.

Would you gay-marriage supporters, support a civil union law if it gave all of the benefits of a marriage (adoption and all)?
