    You don't own marriage, nor does your religion. I have my marriage, I fight for others to be able to marry as I did, the person of their choosing, not restricted because some wrongfully believe that they own the word marriage.

    And I don't give two cents what your religious definition is of sacrament because I am married and I don't consider my marriage to be a sacrament at all. Some same sex couples are Catholic and would consider their marriage a sacrament. The rite you are talking about is the marriage ceremony done in a Catholic church, not the marriage we are discussing here. Not all opposite sex marriages are sacraments, no matter your personal feelings on this issue.

    GOT IT?
    Mine is! We made vows to God and to each other.

    A lot of 'Catholics' support abortion rights so, what's your point.

    That you and other Catholics do not own marriage. You are free to have your marriage as a sacrament, but it is no more relevant here than a church refusing to recognize marriages after divorce or interracial/interfaith marriages. Those are religious restrictions on personal marriages and completely irrelevant to state recognition of marriage.

    I don't see you fighting for my marriage or my opinion.

    [I'm not of any denomination FWIW]

    I'm fully aware of the State and statist positions. But, they butted their heads into that union despite my opinions, even to go as far as to spit on the will of the voters.

    You have your marriage and your opinion. I'm fighting for more people to have theirs. No one is trying to take your marriage away from you.

    The will of the voters is meaningless because of the Constitution. The Constitution protects individual freedoms from the will of the majority, either direct voting or by their representatives. Just as it did several other times when it comes to marriage.

    Religion does not own marriage. You do not own marriage.

    Why should she? No one is trying to prevent you from being allowed to marry. If you're going to debate about ssm, at least know who's doing what.

    I'm just holding myself back from calling her a bossy, opinionated wench.
