    Then you support anarchy because there is always going to be some sort of discrimination in any civilization.

    I have no problems with private discrimination, everyone does it daily. I do have a problem with the state discriminating.

    Right, and in this case the State's ability to discriminate contract on the basis of sexual orientation has been stripped. So you should be fine with it.

    As long as there are laws, there is discrimination. If a person violates a law, they are going to be treated differently than someone who doesn't violate a law. That is a very basic form of discrimination that is accepted and viewed as within the public interest in so and therefore justified, but it is still a form of discrimination. Having citizenship rules for a country is itself a form of discrimination. It treats citizens different than noncitizens, discrimination.

    And there is also racial and gender based discrimination within the state.

    That's what I'm saying, you should be OK with the court ruling since it restricts state discrimination.

    Well there you go then. You have to accept same sex marriage till you can end the marriage license. Only way to uphold that statement.
