    And to head off this slippery slope nonsense before you humiliate yourself further: animals, children, and inanimate objects cannot sign legal contracts and therefore are not relevant to this discussion. I hope that clears up your confusion on "if we allow X marriage, why not Y?"
    Man up? I already manned up and married a woman.

    And what did I dodge? I made fun of gay marriage because I think its funny. Well pathetic really, but funny none the less.
    I think its funny that we live in a time where rights we have had since 1776 have to be fought for every day, yet special interest groups get their "special rights" treated like sacred cows.
    Funny thing is, I know gay people personally and none of them want to get married to the people they are with. And a few of them have been together for decades.

    Again, straight question that you still refuse to answer:

    What "special right" is being asked for?

    the "national guard" is comprised of the units of the various states. it gets kinda confusing.

    I was a member of the Alabama National Guard for 12 years. every month when I went to drill, I was payed with federal money. when my unit was called up for tornado or hurricane relief efforts, we were paid with state money.

    some things the feds paid for and some things the state paid for.

    however, some states do have separate "state guard" units. Alabama has the Alabama State Defense Force which is a completely state funded organization. Most of the members are retired military or people who couldn't cut it in the "real" military. It's quite amusing at times.

    when I was a 2LT, my unit got called up to provide security on the gulf coast following hurricane Ivan. there were some guys from the SDF there and the dude in charge of them was some old timer who had retired from the national guard as an E-5 and was now a LTC in the SDF.

    In states where Same Sex Civil Marriage is legal heterosexual dudes can marry heteroseuxal dudes, so there is nothing "special" available to homosexuals that is not equally available to heterosexuals.

    You would have that right too. You could marry a dude if you wanted.

    So you don't want to exercise that right. So? I don't own a gun, so gun ownership is a "special right" under this definition.

    2A. Read it. Not special. Endowed by our creator. As in God given. As in part of the US constitution and more over the Bill of Rights.

    I can understand that, but the fact remains that you two could get married - which means the law applies equally to heteroseuxals - therefore no "special right" is reserved only for homosexuals.
