Well, yes it is. You can't get a marriage license or certificate in states that ban it. Statutes and state constitutions are laws. It's no different than laws banning people from marrying their brother, sister, father or mother. Illegal is illegal.

Wow, that was pathetic.
Wondering, does the federal constitution mandate that states provide ALL PERSONS within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws, yes or no?(PS, the answer is yes, it does.)
Is marriage a protection of the law, yes or no?(PS, the answer is yes, it is.)
Can you indicate a single compelling state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry that would render such a restriction constitutional?(PS, thus far, the answer has consistently been that no, you cannot.)
Feel free to grow up and offer a big boy argument for your position.
I wouldn't consider banning gay marriage against the equal protection clause because there is no federal law pertaining to it. States have the right to regulate marriage as they should have. Gay marriage would be as much against the first ammendment by forcing an anti religious position into law, as it would be against the equal protection clause.

Haven't heard of DOMA, have you?

And how in the world would legalizing same sex marriage "force an anti religious position into law"? How are marriage and family "anti-religious"?

Is marriage only "anti-religious" when gay people engage in it?

You can't get a license--meaning it is unrecognized. You bear no legal penalty for having an SSM, however, if you get one performed.

Incest laws apply rtegardless of marital status. There are legal penalties.

Feel free to show anyone who got an SSM and was found guilty of a crime in a court of law.

The equal protection clause applies to ALL laws, not just federal ones. Remember Loving v virginia? By your logic, SCOTUS couldn't have taken the case.

Since civil marriage has nothing to do with religion, no-one's religious rights are being denied.

Apparently, he would be willing to stomp all over the religious rights of those churches that perform gay marriages.

You can't, it's against the law. Simple and basic concepts are enormous obstacles for you.

It's not against the law to get married, it's just not recognized by the state.

If you don't understand the difference between illegal and unrecognized, you shouldn't be arguing the case.

Yes, they can. There are no repercussions for doing so. However, the state will not recognize it as valid.

Just because you hate Canadians doesn't mean you're right.
You can marry in the United States, no matter what your sex. The state you marry in either recognizes it or not, but you can still marry.

It's hilarious when you pretend to laugh at me because I can prove all your stupid arguments invalid. Hell, a 10 year old could prove your arguments are full of BS.

It's against the law for County Recorders to issue licenses for them, and for the State to recognize them.

It's not "illegal" for anyone to marry.
