Everyone diserves the right to love some one and have that union of love.

Everyone does have the right to love someone.Not everyone has the right to enter into a contract due to age,education,illness etc. otherwise brothers could marry brothers fathers could marry sons etc.

Under the 14th, a state must show a compelling states interest in denying one group the same rights it gives another...in this case the right to enter into a marrital contract. There are several compelling argurements to deny your incest arguments. What is the compelling states interest in denying two unrelated consenting adults from marrying

If it was an "illness" a cure would have been found, or at least research would be ongoing to "cure it". Now since homosexuality occurs in many many species of animals it is a naturally occuring phenonanom. Relatively rare (2-5 percent of population depending on study you go by), it is not unnatural

Now tell me when did you choose to be hetero? Not when did you start getting stiffies seeing jainie push out her sweater... but when did you sit down and make a conciouse choice to be hetero?....Did your dad one day say "son, now that you have pubic hair, you must make a decision..chicks or dicks?"....

Or did you go by inated feelings that came over time... no decision just "instinct" .... If you did not choose, how can ylou say they did

By woody allen scenario I assume you mean did you choose or not. If so of course you do not want to argue... cause you know you didnt choose.

Common cold has been designated by medical science as a illness... no such diagnosis for homosexuality... except by bigots.

Because it's a question of basic fairness. None of the anti-gay marriage windbags has ever given a logical - non-religious - reason for their bigotry.

Their is no "special treatment" for gay couples. Their should just be fair treatment for all. When we say equal rights its more than marriage. There are 1138 rights that that we are fighting for. And they are to be equal to the rights of straight couples, not to have more.

I am an anti-gay marriage windbag, as you say and my views have nothing to do with religion.

It's just not normal and it's not moral. Any guy who wants to put his pecker in another man's ASS and any man who will let him, AREN'T NORMAL people. They obviously have a chemical inbalance and some form of a mental handicap. It's just disgusting on a moral level.

"It's just not normal and it's not moral. Any guy who wants to put his pecker in another man's ASS and any man who will let him, AREN'T NORMAL people"
A) moral and normal are subjective words... The question is why should two citizens who are doing nothing illegal be denied the same rights and privileges as two other citizens?
B) Do you break hetero marriage down to sexual acts?... if the hetero couple wanted to do anal would you deny them marriage... What two people do sexually within the law behind closed doors is none of your business. You find it disgusting... fine I find the idea of two obeese hetero's doing the horizontal momba together discusting. How ever that has nothing to do with rather they should be allowed to be married

"They obviously have a chemical inbalance and some form of a mental handicap."
A) so obvious that medical science has not found any type of imballance... yet you know better don't you.,
B) So if it is a mental handicap (which it is not) who are you to decide which persons with mental handicaps can get married?...

This has nothing to do with sexual acts, rather you find it moral or not. It has to do with all americans having equal rights...

Treating people as if their relationships are not as real or as important as others is wrong. It's 2013, this is embarrassing and we should ALL be ashamed that this is even a question.
