    Why should someone who has a girlfriend be forced to do all those things? What makes YOUR marriage more special for protection?

    BTW you can STILL have those protections applied, just provide a marriage certificate from the religious (or non-religious) church of your choice. Why must a government approved marriage be needed?

    even thought this one was stayed (which is awesome in itself because it will go to SCOTUS) the two court cases by FEDERAL judge have BIG TIME verbiage in them. not just saying equality or equal rights or unfair discrimination but UNCONSTITUTIONAL and VIOLATES THE 14th AMENDMENT

    HUGE steps

    Yes, we are all created equal. And when SSM is legalized, you too can marry someone of the same sex. EQUAL.

    What about people who want to marry children? Why should pedophiles be treated as second class Citizens? Why do want pedophiles to die while on hold with 911?

    Because the law requires a hospital to follow the wishes of next of kin if the patient can't make a decision. A piece of paper from a local church does not circumvent that. The law gives possession of property to next of kin on death. The law grants child custody to next of kin. (Although a girlfriend would still have custody if she were the biological mother, but if the children are adopted they get shuttled off to foster care)

    If you want your girlfriend to be recognized by the state as next of kin, you are free to do that. There's a contract you can sign....

    Children cannot sign a legal contract. The state has an important interest served by not allowing children to do that.

    This is not the case in banning same sex marriage. There's the guard rail for your slippery slope fallacy.

    But it's not in the Constitution. You'd think a judge might know this.

Show me how dysfunctional and unnatural from a biological standpoint are incorrect. We know biologically that sex organs exist for reproduction. We know that, at least in humans, the penis and vagina are actually optomized to function together and there are significant health risks behind gay sex practices that are not natural for those parts of the body (primarily male on male anal sex).
    This falls apart once you factor in things like infertility and relationships which don't have sex for the sake of procreation. A man has a penis but can't procreate. A woman has a vagina but is sterile. What happens then? Is their marriage unnatural and dysfunctional? Are they meant to be discriminated upon like gay people? Obviously not because your entire "biological" argument is ridiculous and here is the kicker - marriage has never been about biological functions. Get a history book on marriage, my young friend.
