Give 'em whatever "rights" but don't use the work marriage to describe their relationships. Well, the term Quasi-Marriage would work.

Marriage is a privilege and I see no reason why that privilege should be extended to gays.

Explain you position, using only reason and logic. PROVE that gay folks marrying is bad for them, their kids, and society. Prove that same sex marriage bans serve any logical purpose whatever. Prove that children are better off with unmarried parents. Prove that the elder do better when they have never been allowed to marry.

Good Luck.

If the Supreme Court rules something unconstitutional, no state has the right to rule against it.

Equality under the law concerns similarly situated and in marriage it is male and female. Males and females under the law must be treated similar. Same gender union is not similar to male/female union.

And the Court and the law always recognized marriage as between male and female,'Baker' is Holding. High Court tossed gay marriage appeal on every tenet of Constitution claimed; Due Process Clause, 14th Amendment, Equal Protection Clause, and 9th Amendment. So for starters gay marriage is gonna have to get by stare decisis. A very formidable challenge that is not likely to succeed.

Same-sex marriage in the United States is recognized in several jurisdictions. As of November 2012, nine states—Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, and Washington—as well as the District of Columbia and two Native American tribes[1]—have legalized same-sex marriage. In addition, Rhode Island recognizes same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions,

I dont see how Same Sex Marraige can be stopped now?
its stupid to slowly change then suddenly what to reverse after years of people are Married

Slavery was recognized in "several jurisdictions" and right to vote too, but didn't mean acceptance of High Court striking down slavery and enfranchising blacks. Skin color cannot be a condition to disallow human beings rights under the Constitution, but behavior can be. Our laws codify behavior such as in marriage is behavior between male and female by design and nature. Natural law before it was common law or case law.
