    Which is why women are not equal to men (I, because I am a woman, cannot marry another woman, but any man can) and men are not equal to women (my brother, because he is a man, cannot marry a man, but any woman can). This makes everyone have more equality giving everyone the ability to marry regardless of their sex/gender.

    This just makes me laugh because here (a little bit) and on other forums, people have staunchly declared that TX would never allow SSM. They esp. relied proudly on it being explicitly written into their state constitution.

    I laughed at them then too. If I start reading about TX seceding over it (again), I'll laugh even more.

    Nope. I refuse to not fight against inequality or injustices.

    This is about everyone's rights and no one's rights are ever infringed upon just because same sex couples are allowed to marry legally. You cannot show how your rights are infringed upon by same sex marriages at all.

    Have at it.
    Whose coffin?

    So many Christians seem to forget that God is the only Judge.

    How unAmerican, to suggest that the states should base law on a religious belief...and not even a universal one. Last I checked, every state, even TX married atheists, all religions, and all sinners. Even felons, fornicators and adulterers are allowed to marry. What's God's opinion on that?

    States defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. You want that changed then let the people of the state decide. You live in Oklahoma, that isn't going to happen so you trump up some bogus argument about equal protection for something that isn't in the Constitution.

    If you married a woman then why is this such an issue for you? The high court had its chances over and over again so you better stick with the states
    And states did define marriages as between two people of the same race (struck down by Loving v VA), people not incarcerated (struck down at least to a large degree by Turner v Safley), and anyone not behind on child support (struck down by Zablocki v Redhail). State laws are subject to limitations of the 14th Amendment and the EPC.

    4.) you keep saying this but havent provided any examples, therefor its a failure
    5.) once again facts, LAWS and court cases prove you wrong. Civil unions are factually not equal to a marriage, once again your opinion cant change this fact but i love that you keep posting they are, it exposes your posts for the factual failure they are.

    defend your factually false claim

    tell us how a civil union grants the rights of marriage
    tell us how a civil union grants the almost 1200 rights and protections marriage does, tell us how it grants the states rights and protections also, I cant wait to read this!
    Yes, it is a fact that lower courts have made a ruling but it isn't a fact that SSM has been determined as the definition of marriage, that will be determined by the SC or a Constitutional Amendment, then you will have your fact

    Thank you, yes some do and some don't, that is a fact

    Thank you, yes, some do and some don't, that is indeed a fact

    I said you provided opinions and that is all lower courts have done and that is all you have done, provided opinion. A fact is something that cannot be refuted, your argument for SSM can be refuted by those states that haven't changed the definition

    Laws on the books are fact, rulings are opinions, The SC makes the ultimate ruling then it becomes a fact unless there is a Constitutional Amendment and that would be a fact as well

    The state of TX has authorized civil unions that entitle those involved with the same rights as married couples and all the financial benefits as well. That is a fact

    You really don't understand Loving vs. Va thus are a waste of time. Educate yourself and get back to me. It had nothing to do with same sex and everything to do with race. You people have been brainwashed, all must be Obama supporters because if the Obama team says it, then it must be true. Equal protection has nothing to do with marriage because marriage is a state issue and not defined in the Constitution. Get back to me when you figure out what Loving vs. Va actually did and who the principles were
