    That's where I disagree. IMO this isn't about equality at all. It's about pushing the envelope of normalcy and tearing down traditional morality and religion.

    Also IMO traditioanl marriage is a sacrament from God, not a right.

    Actually, that would depend on how far people are willing to take their case/claim. It allows for a small group of judges to speak for all of us because that is part of their job, particularly when it comes to constitutional challenges.

    That's your personal view. Many Americans do not share your view on morality OR religion. However no one else is trying to limit the rights and privileges of someone else.

    You have demonstrated no harm to others or society at all. If *you* dont like gays in society, that is your hang up, but it demonstrates no harm.

    Edit: btw, SSM does not tear down my religion, Christianity, at all. My faith is much stronger than allowing societal pressures to damage it. If that were the case, divorce, adultery, domestic violence, child abuse, etc would have done so long ago.)

    Tradition, morality, and normality, nor your religious beliefs (or anyone's for that matter) have a place in our laws.

    Your religion has nothing to do with it and this false notion that marriage has always meant one man and one woman is false as well.

    Marriages purpose has evolved throughout time depending on many factors, location, social status, culture etc.

    Many instances of same sex marriage have been observed in many cultures throughout history as well as men with multiple wives (which still exists), women with multiple husbands (which still exists), marriages were once used as a living, breathing peace treaty...

    Marriage has never and will never belong exclusively to you or your ilk.

    Nope, just a claim much as yours was. Founded in personal bias, not fact.

    I think you're wrong but, sooner or later there will be a final butting of heads to decide.
