Obviously false, since one gay person cannot marry another.
The rest of your post was just racist gibberish, undeserving of an answer.
au contraire, that isn't a right, it's a law. See you are just confused. Common among liberals.

Really, what rights? You do know that is against the law don't you. You do know the republicans caused the Civil Rights Act and Voting Act passed against liberal's wishes don't you.

Another insane comment from Cat. They have repeatedly proven they have no interest in the constitution. They will rule for the GOP no matter what. They will not even consider the people of the US, only big bucks.

How many more times to they have to rule in direct contradiction to the constitution before you will see it?

If you are right, gay marriage proponents can start uncorking the champagne.

You are a super-moron. The Southern Democrats and Dixiecrats of years ago would hardly be described as liberals, except by twisted ignoramuses like you. Those types eventually fled to the Republican party, which they infest today.

Also, yesterday's Republican party bears little resemblance to the horde of rabid cretins who make up most of the party today.

You ask, "what rights?". That would be the basic human right of people to pursue a satisfying life without you sticking your perverted bigoted nose in their underwear.

If I had equal protection under the CONSTITUTION then my marriage would be recognized by the federal government just like hetero marriages are.

So right now it's the hetero couples that are getting "special rights".

And OOOOH, how the party has fallen. Such support today would get a Republican run out out the party.

Just look at what they have been doing over the last few years to those very acts.

Gibberish. And please stop using multiple names to post, the only thing that's "confusing" is figuring out which version of you I'm addressing, Jimbo.
