    Furthermore do you know what standards are? do you know what the purpose of a standards are?

    Because me and you can do it, and homosexuals can't. Denying hem the same right we have, to marry he one we love, without justification is discrimination.

    DOMA essentially punishes states that recognize SSM. Those people are legally wed but cannot receive federal benefits due to the federal government legislating marriage which is not their jurisdiction.

    A pet can't consent. Neither can a table. Again, there is justification there.

    A gay person has the same rights as I when deciding who to marry. Would you disagree?

    I did answer it. You're mistaken in your proposition. I think I made hat clear.

    So the Constitution protects polygamy?

    Again, that has nothing to do with what you said.

    No, it really hasn't. Not in this context. Always been one man/one woman or one man/X number of women. If you want to include the later in the modern definition, more power to ya. But SSM has never fallen within the definition of marriage.

    And the states HAVE decided. The vast majority have decided against SSM. And the few outliers, most allow it only through court decision and in opposition of the will of the electorate.
