    No one said the Pope had to give it his blessing.
    I did not say marriage is not a right, but instead hinted at the fact that marriage attached to the state is NOT a right. I'm not talking about gays here either, but the general idea of attaching marriage to the state and them claiming its a right for that connection to exist.

    It doesn't matter if it's "a right" or not. The government can't grant it to some people and not to others without a valid reason, which they do not have.

    That is a different issue altogether.

    Who cares if you call it a "right" or a "privilege" or whatever other term you want to use? The government can't extend it to some people and not others. And if there is no practical distinction between those terms, then you're just arguing semantics.

    Why? Why can one group of people go to the local Justice of the Peace and form a union that provides great economical means and another group cannot?

    There is a huge difference between the government deciding to get involved in part of our lives and those benefits coming out being a right. The term you're looking for is government service and benefits from government action are NOT rights. This is hardly semantics as understanding rights is the basic foundation of a country and getting it wrong in such a way as you people are doing here is a serious issue. Lastly, this bit about equal treatment I agree with you on, but it has little to do with my point I'm making here.

    Anti-bigot day It's nice when Americans stand up and support a company that came under fire by intolerant bigoted officials filled with hate for a company and would consider abusing the law because they disagree with an owner's legally help personal view.
