    There's a bunch I agree with there Hamster, however, gotta say, Muslims were well known to the founders. The luminaries among them were deists more than Christians of the day. They followed the forms, attending church and such, and believed in God, but were neither Christian or Catholic in their private writings.

    Another SCOTUS edict that has no constitutional foundation.

    Promoting and sanctioning marriage for one group and denying the same protections to another group is a violation of the 14th amendment of the US Constitution. The government has no right to handpick who gets certain protections and who does not.

    I don't really follow the SSM scene much but, are there any states where the courts have upheld local laws banning SSM?

    I don't think marriage is so much a fundamental right (you don't have to be married you know), but I do think that if government is going to already be involved with marriage, it is fundamental that they ensure a fair and equal playing field.

    marriage as a right predates the US Constitution...just as the right to self defense.

    9th amendment... not all rights are enumerated in the constitution.

    There's also something to be said about the rights of the minority here. After all, I doubt you'd really need protections for things like speech and the press, if you are only going to be speaking in glowing terms about whoever is in power at the moment.
