    LOL Why because I know that you do not own the sole definition of marriage and neither does your religion (or anyone's for that matter) and I aim to keep it that way? The marriage we are and always are discussing when it comes to same sex marriage and the bans by the states is state marriage, not religious/personal marriage. In the US, those two are separate. They may have some overlaps for some or even many couples, but legally those overlaps are not important.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Your marriage isn't under attack. Is there something you need help with? Is there somebody trying to make your marriage illegal? Because I will go after that person with a tirade of insults that will make their children cry.

    No one needs to fight for your marriage. You have not proven how your marriage is affected in any way, and you CHOSE to have the state recognize your marriage, no one forced you to do so. YOu could have just had a ceremony in your church and be recognized by God. Why did you choose to include the state too? How do they validate your marriage?

    Definition of sacrament (n)
    Bing Dictionary
    sac·ra·ment[ sákrəmənt ]
    religious rite or ceremony: in Christianity, a rite that is considered to have been established by Jesus Christ to bring grace to those participating in or receiving it.
    consecrated items: the bread and wine consecrated at Communion
    something sacred: something considered to be sacred or to have a special significance

    GOT IT?
    Lying is a sin WCH. I thought you were above sinning. About 20 states banned civil unions in their constitutions. Texas is one of them. Indianan folks on your side tried to start the process to ban civil unions in Indiana just last month. Gay rights folks did not pass any of those bans. It was your side. I do not know why you lie WCH, but if you keep it up people are going to start calling you a liar. You better repent now and admit your sin. Or are you a hypocrite as well?

    That is an understanding based in your faith. We don't all follow THAT faith and should not be forced to not to mention that it does not dictate our laws.

    very good thats what the first paragraph and my OP says lol

    his ruling is currently allowing the ban to stay pending 10th Circuit Court of Appeals (WY, UT, CO, KS, NM, OK) since it already hearing a case on this matter and his ruling could be appealed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals (TX, LA, MS) and both may very well go to SCOTUS which is awesome
