About alot of things... But this I am sure about! "Marriage" is between one woman and one man!

Religion should never have any role in the civil rights of the people of America. Those who use it to restrict other's freedoms are prejudice idiots. There should be no laws restricting the rights of homosexuals.

their rights are not being restricted.

And marriage is NOT a civil right.

The fact that siblings cannot marry proves that.

While I may not agree with it personally, in America we have the separation of church and state and this is a state issue.

Yeah, but did you know that in most states where homosexuals CAN'T marry, first cousins can? How is that any better than siblings?
Marriage is a civil right in front of the state. It is only a holy rite before God, and any church should have the ability to turn people away from getting married in it...but the state shouldn't have the ability to decide who gets certain tax and health benefits and such. There's a separation of church and state for a reason.

It can't be a right if it is denied based only on lineage/genetics.

actually, the supreme court called it a civil right.
the supreme court applied the rule expressed in the 14th amendment in loving v. virginia and chief justice warren wrote :
"The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men ...

To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discriminations. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State."

marriage is, indeed, a civil right not to be denied any american citizen.

also, in both the Prop 8 and DOMA trials, the 14th amendment was used in court before the seated federal judges dealing with same sex marriage. every judge that has heard either case has agreed with both the applicability and the civil right of same sex marriage.

you may disagree with those findings as is your right, but, frankly, i'd buy more of what a judge has to say about the constitution than an internet stranger such as yourself.
