Marriage is a constitutional right.

And YES, it applies to same-sex couples as well.

Rights come from Our Creator - God!
The government does not give us those!

Natural rights do also!
Unnatural is what gay marriage IS!

It IS a sin AGAINST nature & God!

Sodomy IS what homosexuality IS!

An UNNATURAL sex act!

Go to another Country where it IS welcome!
It is NOT welcome in the United States of America - a Christian Nation!

Cause it DAMN sure is NOT an atheist one!

No, this isn't a christian caliphate. You're confused.

Now go rail about those who covet. Then we'll know you don't merely have a psycho sexual problem, christianist.

Eventually it will be on broad equal protection grounds. The government even now can't show a rational basis for preventing marriage equality.

But for the time being there will be some narrow grounds declared for marriage equality in certain states, with federal benefits, I expect.

I created you all to be loving, not hating. Bigots like you are what is unnatural. I send people like you to spend eternity in hell. It's even worse than Kentucky.

You are a biggot.. I hope you realize that. People like you are why America is slowly receding back to the 1940's. Go join the Westboro Baptists if you're going to spread nothing but hate!

You are the bigot, I have to say!

Bigot

A bigot is a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from their own.

You've got it correct, although I would use the term "civil marriage" to distinguish legal marriage from "traditional" or "religious" marriage, which aren't legal terms.

Marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman. Anything else is an abomination that can never become marriage.

I take from your message that you are a proud heterosexual. Good for you. While you state that America is a christian nation and we homos are not welcome here, look in your mirror for a change. Sodomy is also unnatural and in most states against the law. This includes oral sex, given or received. In the bible, only the sex act itself is allowed, no BJ's or any other form of pleasure is allowed, no mouth shall know the genitals of the spouse. Get off your high horse.

Hey Yoda - God gave us the same rights as everyone else. They've been illegally and immorally denied to us by the US government and the tyranny of the majority.

That will be corrected.

Your narrow-minded intolerance is not a rational defense of your position. That's because there is none.

Sacred union, my arse. Your intolerance and bigotry are the true abomination.
