    Why is the title 'marriage' so important to keep from gays?
    The SC has never ruled on the definition of marriage and the question is why?

    I believe in tradition, history, states rights, and the rule of law. You want marriage for Same sex couples then change the law in the states through the voting process, not through the courts

    The "floodgates" have been open since 1968 and the Loving decision. Guess what? Plenty of interracial couples still being refused weddings at many churches across the country. Heck, one was even refused just a few years ago by a JoP. Until you have credible evidence that this will ever change, you have nothing.

    Heck, you better believe I and many others would be on the side of the church if such a thing happened.

    The feds had to step in and say that states couldnt discriminate against races in marriage...correct? Hmmm.

    Again....a little history goes a long way.

    Gender is an issue, because the contract of marriage applies to opposite genders ONLY, meaning there is gender discrimination in contracts.

    It's not the title, its the contract. The legal contract, with all the protections and rights and benefits of the law is called marriage.

    And state laws can be struck down as unconstitutional when they cannot show that they are furthering a legitimate state interest, just as several state laws pertaining to marriage have already been struck down for being unconstitutional, including at least 2 that had nothing to do with race.

    It doesn't matter what you think is deviant. The only thing that matters is whether you can prove it will do harm to someone. You cannot prove that same sex marriage does harm. Heck, you can't really prove that it is deviant, since deviant is a subjective term.

    So you did ask it, not to worry, I know liberals constantly wrestle with the truth.
