no equal protection issue at all..
Do post menopausal women have to get a different type of license?

it simply denotes a rational distinction, marriages provide both a mom and dad and could potentially conceive, civil unions cannot.
Stupid, you don't have to be able to procreate in order to marry.
It's that simple.

I've explained this about 5 times now. My name is Curt. If you expect my last name, dream on, not with this bunch of haters running free. Was that so tough to figure out? You know VERY well what I mean about the "people" posting under many different names. They do it to hide, like the little wood rats they are. Don't play all fake 'dumb' with me. I know you aren't that stupid. I get so tired of you guys and your fake outrage and using intentional "misunderstandings". That is a Fox news move.

Fine, just don't use the word marriage.
Civil marriage works just fine. No other words are necessary. You don't own the language.

illegitimacy? Yea the fact children are being born without regard to marriage. Obviously your too old for the concept of sex outside of marriage..look around you and get a clue.
wait, you do get that illegitimacy is children born out of wedlock right?
so they are NOT born without regard to marriage...

follow?

And I called the NY court bigotry as a joke since that is what you need to argue rather than address what the court said...
how about you address what the court said?
oh right, its all bigotry and doesn't need to be addressed, right?

And i am a POS simply because I disagree with you...
see how silly that is?

Oh wait, you're not straight, you're LGBT, I forgot.
You do not have to be gay to be LGBT, why do you think you do?

Are people who like the opposite sex already LGBT?
Like some transgenders?

So when will you be banning them from the club?

in your state for example, gay couples cannot get a license to marry ...
maybe they should try to get something that applies better to their relationship...
as to you, you can marry can't you since you are a man with a girlfriend, right?
gays have different reason they want the rights, so we should give them what they need...
So if a gay couple has the exact same needs that you and your spouse have for wanting to get married, they should be able to have the exact same legal document from the state as you and your spouse.

Just making it clear that male-male, male-female, and female-female couples can all receive the same licenses to marry with no problems. You are the one trying to make the same-sex couples get something else.

Because the law in most states forbids legal civil marriage for same-sex couples.

No, it does not.

No, it does not.
Jane Dough wrote:

When you make exceptions applicable to only some of the population, then by definition, you are discriminating. In the case of marriage, since the courts have ruled marriage is a fundamental right, to discriminate, the state must show a compelling interest in doing so. None has been given.
Jane Dough wrote:

fine...
Yes, I and others wish to change the system.
Jane Dough wrote:

Then don't enter into a same-sex marriage.

The number of states having same-sex civil marriage equality does not negate my argument.

You don't understand the point of this little sub thread? Strange, you were the one to start it.
