    Your adding on restrictions. That's what I'm talking about. You cannot go out and marry just whomever you want. She has to be of age, she has to be consenting, she has to be single, she cannot be a close blood relative, she has to be a US citizen unless you want a mountain of paperwork, you have to take a blood test and share the results in certain states, etc, etc. You cannot marry just whomever you want. You never could, you can't today, you never will be able to. Thanks for proving my point.

    i can marry any consenting adult female who is unmarried. if i were gay, i could not marry any consenting adult male who is unmarried. that isn't equal protection under the law.

    Other than the sexes of the individuals, please tell us how a homosexual relationship differs from a heterosexual one.

    Back in the good old days, sodomy was illegal in Texas. This changed in 2003, thanks to the SC. Oh, how I long for the past sometimes.

    I imagine the SC will strike down the DOMA and allow our country to move farther toward destruction.

    You changed your statement so as to add qualifiers. That's not your original claim, the claim I took issue with. This is what you said:

    As you admit, no you cannot marry just whomever you feel in love with. There are restrictions everyone has to comply with.

    Yes it is, because everyone is held by the same rule and the law has a long history of treating the sexes differently. Everyone has the all the same allowances and restrictions as everyone else, and that will not change with the legalization of SSM.

    Do you know what the definition of sodomy is? Anything other than penile-vaginal sex. So, if you have ever had oral sex or any type of manual stimulation, you have committed sodomy.

    I imagine the SC will strike down the DOMA and allow our country to move farther toward destruction.
    I imagine the SC will strike down DOMA, supporting the states, and lead us further towards enlightenment.

    the only females i can't marry are those who are too young to consent or those who are already married. those who are married could divorce and then marry me. in many states, a homosexual cannot marry any eligible person of the same sex. that isn't equal protection.

    this is incorrect. under current law in most states, a homosexual cannot marry a consenting adult of the same sex. a heterosexual can. this is not equal protection.

    you are also opposed to oral sex between a man and a woman? A man and a woman shouldn't be able to enjoy oral sex in the privacy of their home? Anything else you don't want straight couples not to do because you have hang-ups about sex?

    Legalizing marriage only for one group isn't equal protection either. Equality means EVERYONE, not just your pet group. EVERYONE.

    Quote an existing state law that allows heterosexuals to marry the same sex. Make sure your link works because I'll be checking your quote.
