If the freedom for gays to marry did not hold water as a basic liberty you would not have seen certain states adopt the idea gays could marry there.
Those states altered the requirements, changed the rules, dropped conjugality as the foundation of legal marriage in the state.
The bigger question now is if we're to allow this segment of the American population, gay citizens, the freedom to marry in some states then why not in every state given that action simply represents a basic civil right?
Because each state sets their own marriage laws, and marriage as a basic civil right is based on the union of one man and one woman as husband and wife, not the two person spouses for life regardless of gender composition.

If conjugality is expendable, why not monogamy too? Where is the line drawn?

Was this another religious crazy Muslim gone off the deep end?

Dressed in his religious holy garb of all black.

A man brandishing an assault rifle, shotgun and handgun opened fire Monday inside a building at the Washington Navy Yard.

Killing at least four people and wounding at least seven more, including two police officers.

Does not change the fact that once married legally in any state that allows same sex marriage, they will be fully recognized as married on the federal level in all 50 states. Regardless of any state constitutional amendment.

Dan's funny. That's why I like the silly jackass. Starts rambling about space aliens and Mountain dew and other weird stuff. I think he starts off with some kind of point but forgets it before he types the first sentence.

I am currently married to a man but I have been a closet lesbian for over 15 years. I have finally come out to my family and friends. I would love to someday marry a woman and have the same rights that I had with my husband.

Your sons no longer need parents. They are adults and can manage on their own. Therefore your current marriage is a "mutually sterile, pointlessly opposite gendered half of marriage".

And since you believe that marriage is "essentially a cross cultural evolutionary constraint on mating behavior", you no longer need to be married.

Your wife's body is no longer going to produce offspring. She no longer needs you to provide for your offspring. There is no need for you to continue to hang around and enjoy the rights and protections of marriage.

According to your own definitions, you should move on to someone else and raise another family--that is if you are still potent.

Otherwise, dissolve your marriage. You can still live together and seek out the same legal protections through attorneys that you claim same-sex couples can access.

Ss marriage is an oxymoron.

Divorce is a sin.

Here is where you not only go stupid, you also show why a gay can never comprehend, let alone dictate, anything about marriage.

Marriage is a life-long commitment. While childbearing years come and go, the relationships birthed continue, and the circle of life continues. We anticipate grandchildren and even great-grandchildren. We hold our role as not just a model of marriage and parenting, but grandparents.

A mutually sterile ss couple can never experience those relationships. The roots of a family, branching out and literally blending with others.

This is a perfect example of why homosexuals need the self-identity and confidence to establish their own relationships. They don't fit marriage, no matter which way you go.

I'm sure it must have been a type-o on your part but didn't you mean to say,30 UNconstitutional amendments to the state Constitutions? I mean in the end history will bear this out! No need to thank me,you're welcome!

So, you would tell a woman who is being battered and raped by her husband that it would be a "sin" to divorce him? Pathetic, if that's the case.
