The Constitution is silent on marriage and so we should make an amendment defining and supporting marriage.
Only then will SSM be a 14th Amendment issue.

However since it accords benefits, priveleges, and legal protections to marriage, and the states issue a marriage license (contract) then it is gender discrimination to deny gays (it prohibits 2 people of the same gender from entering into that contract).
But there have been several decisions where SCOTUS does claim marriage is a right. I dont pay much attention to the details of that but it is true.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
I LOVE when people gaining rights and freedoms upsets others that already have them. It makes me smile.
There is no sound argument against equal rights/SSM they have all been debunked countless times. And only bigots and those that support discrimination want it not to be legal and to grant others equal rights. The game is up and NOBODY honest and educated falls for it lol
