    What a few activist lawyers in black robes say is irrelevant. SCOTUS has also upheld slavery and Jim Crow Laws. They aren't infallible and above questioning or criticism. I'm all for the states voting what the definition of marriage should be for each individual state, but people like you never accept the results. There is a moral barrier being breached here. It was never the intent by The Founders to have SCOTUS resolve moral and social conflicts which is why these matters should be left to the states.

    Catering/coddling deviant and filthy lifestyles is not in The Constitution
    That is where the catchall comes in. The 9th Amendment very clearly points out that not all rights are specifically listed in the Constitution, but that doesn't mean the people don't still maintain those rights not listed.

    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.

    And no, anyone with more than a few IQ points knows that marriage isn't all about procreation. The point of marriage has no purpose in biology. Procreation happens just fine without marriage. And marriage happens all the time without procreation. We live in the 21st Century, not the past.
    Notice I didn't say ANYTHING about procreation. :

    1.) 100% WRONG as usual

    "i" dont lump it in anywhere, facts put it there because of discrimination, equality and marriage being a right

    please try to keep up and not make stuff up it always gets you in to trouble and make your posts completely fail.

    2.) can you show me my right to work in the constitution? again focus on equality and discrimination and it will lead you to facts.

    You are simply wrong. There are valid state interests that can be articulated for those other restrictions on marriage. Animals cannot enter into legal contracts nor give legal consent to anything. Children, same thing. Too close relatives already have the main purpose of marriage, establishing a legal kinship, and there is plenty of evidence that maintaining marriage between those people not so closely related will help to ensure that there is no question as to the undue influence that could have been involved in the relationship from a time prior to the age of consent.

    It is all about being able to provide proof that a valid state interest is being furthered by the restriction. There is none when it comes to a restriction based on sex/gender.

    What other "biological purpose" would you be referring to then? Please enlighten us.
