    It was another response to your question. Try and keep up.
    Try using complete sentences if you want someone to respond to you....try and maintain comprehensibility.

    And that was not a response to my question. At least not a relevant one. I asked about the application of benefits, privileges, and legal protections....whether gays deserved the same that straight couples receive thru marriage.

    What mindset is 'powering' all that?

    As I said, the mindset which holds that the primary purpose of sex is pleasure, and not procreation.

    Luckily for all of us, the constitution doesn't allow you to do that.

    You're allowed to think that. You're not allowed to make the rest of us follow what you think. But feel free to practice whatever such opinions you want in your own life. That is a liberty that we are all guaranteed.

    It is perfectly easy to understand grammatically unless you ignore what I was responding to (which you did). Try and keep up with your own posts.

    Again, the supreme court specifically did not make that claim because they would need to first specify that gay marriage is a right. As of right now it is not a legal right unless the state decides it is.

    Should all private acts be legal, in your opinion?
    Private acts that do not infringe on anyone else's rights.

    Let me know when they are designated as protected classes in any states or by the feds.
