    The distinction is marriage never meant same sex.

    You specifically said they are broken, that is different.
    You don't get to personally decide whether the word "marriage" includes same sex partners or not. You don't own the word, nor its official meaning.

    Broken crayons are still completely usable. Only someone who has never used crayons would not know this.

    Crayola actually makes a machine to turn broken crayons into full, mixed color crayons.

    Tell that to the people of Utah, and other states that have voted against changing the definition of marriage, that they are just a few misguided people. Doesn't say much for the smaller group of people that voted for it. Gee, what happened to that arrogant left wing meme of "we had a vote, and you lost"? You are wrong.

    Marriage not meaning same sex has nothing to do with me.

    But that is different from the nonbroken ones. Now, if you simply called them cruyons and they were nto broken, that would be the scenario.

    Popular majorities do not get to decide constitutional rights. We shall see within the next few years whether or not same sex marriage is a constitutional right. Majorities in states have voted to outlaw interracial marriage. It does not mean they were justified in doing so. This is a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy.

    A vote that happened almost, if not, a decade ago.

    And courts are completely within their duty and right to strike down laws that violate the US Constitution.

    I, unlike you, realize that our laws are not just based on votes, but many things.

    And civil unions are different than marriages, even if they come with all the same things.

    Plus, I changed the question just for you and you still failed to answer. Would it be okay for those children with brown eyes to be given Crayola crayons while those with any other eye color got RoseArt crayons? Would it be fair to distinguish between children that way?
