You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

So continue with the ad homs son. The comedy factor is high.
Being human and a rather smart and compassionate one at that, I don't have to have issues effect me directly to know that it's wrong when it inversely effects others.
Mine isn't. Yet, I am still legally married.
And there are religions more than willing to unite two men or two women in Holy Matrimony. Also, completely legal for them to do so (whether the marriage is legally recognized by the state is something different than the actual union into Holy Matrimony).
Our government doesn't recognize Holy Matrimony, it recognizes marriage, legally entered into by signing a marriage license by both parties, someone authorized by the state to oversee the agreement, and (most places) at least one witness. No religion, Holy Matrimony, or any belief in a deity needed at all.

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

You know better NP. Same sex marriage would give you just as much right to marry someone of the same sex as a gay person. The only reason you wouldn't want to is because you are straight. And once you acknowledge that, you are acknowledging that gays don't have the same rights as you when it comes to marriage.
Honestly, your parroting of rhetoric gets old.
