    For a guy who has the Constitution as his Avatar, you certainly don't understand it. Every possible right is yours, mine, and everyone's to have. They don't get "made", they get protected. It was their right at 1776 as much as it is now; that the law didn't reflect that, is no more or less curious than how slavery was tolerated.

    on this specific topi many have echoed your exact post and im sure you wont be the last. I also find it odd that one who has that avatar ignores it for this topic and claims foul on this rights simply because they don't like them.

    Then you would know SSM is not a right.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    The Constitution protects marriage and equal protection. Same sex marriage is simply a label for same sex couples entering into marriage, which is protected. Just as interracial marriage is simply a label for interracial couples entering into marriage, which again is protected.

    All marriage is a right. It is a right of the people to enter into a marriage contract. Same sex marriage uses the same exact marriage contract as opposite sex marriage. The contract and access to/entry into the contract by the people is the right that is protected. There is no right to maintain a definition of marriage based on restrictions placed upon it.

    And yet you can't counter it with anything more than old sayings and rolling of eyes. Facts work better in debates.

    thank you again for a meaningless failed point and proving you dont get facts and reality.
