Personally I would shudder in horror at the thought of SCOTUS ruling on my rights.<quoted text>
All SCOTUS has ruled on is that Marriage is a FUNDAMENTAL right......and if it is truly a FUNDAMENTAL right....then it has to be FUNDAMENTAL without regard to specific gender make-up!!
So, opposite-sex is a SPECIFIC gender make-up, are you saying that makes marriage a "SPECIAL" right ONLY for couples consisting of a man and a woman?
It will be interesting to see how SCOTUS rules the next time around.
Each individual has rights. The SCOTUS should support the rights of the individual to form his/her own unions, associations etc and not let anyone limit them with qualitative words like male and female, gay and straight, homosexual and heterosexual. Individuals have rights because they are an individual and if they engage in peaceful relationships with other consenting adults it is not the business of either the government or the pew warmers.
I do not see why we would say a man has a right and a woman has a right and then claim two men or two women do not have the same rights. Or that you have a right when you are with a man, but not when you are with a woman. As an individual you have the right to be with other individuals.
