a) the state interest is following our constitution's guarantee of equal protection of the law for all.<quoted text>
Can you indicate a compelling state interest in designating a same sex personal intimate sexual relationship "marriage", when the right to marry is based on the historical, social, cultural, and long standing concept of marriage as a union of husband and wife?
What will you do with your copious amount of free time when marriage equality is extended to ALL including polygamists union, and the state no longer has an interest in marriage at all?
B) only an intensely stupid person would not understand that 3 (or more) is greater than two, and therefore polygamy, by definition, seeks greater protection of the law. Polygamy was not legalized after bans on interracial marriage were struck, and only an idiot would think that allowing same sex marriage would automatically lead to polygamy.
