Even a decline in marriage rates would not prove allowing more people equal opportunities would be the cause.<quoted text>
Your ignorance of the bigger picture here is whats at issue. You took a gamble (that I was "old") and lost. No, young people as likley to be against gay marriage, once they here the arguments as anyone.
The future is not "inevitable" and even a loss brings with it plenty of upswing..(like proving us right in your tactics and predictions)
Remeber, we are now on record as opposing same-sex "marriage" as being destructive of marriage and the family.
Thats an impiracle question that can be proved through the statistics of marriage in countries that have had same-sex "marriage" the longest.
The truth of that question will continue to be verifiable long before the Supreme Court imposes marriage on the entire country.
Unsupported and unsupportable fear of the future also fails to qualify as a rational excuse.
You provide no legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of equal rights as require by the constitution.
