By not allowing gay marriage, you are denying people of basic rights. Civil unions are wrong because they try to use the "separate but equal" argument that was overturned years ago. Gay marriage should be allowed in every state.

All individuals in a democratic republic, especially minority voices, deserve equal rights.

To mnimize the tyranny of the majority is what the constitution and bill of rights was constructed for. Marriage has always been defined by the supreme court as a fundamental right which can only be limited by a narrowly tailored statute meant to achieve a compelling government purposes.
