    You aren't Mohammed and marriage isn't the mountain. Don't expect that the mountain must come to you if you don't want to go to the mountain.
    gay couples are perfectly suited for marriage they can do anything we require of hetero sexual couples some do more

    They can recognize the institution, but have no say at all in who I marry. And when we talk about legal, it isn't based on everyone's opinion. Instead, when rights are granted, they aregranted to everyone equally. And when you restrict, you have to have just cause, and mere opinion isn't just cause. That's why your side loses in court. Your side doesn't understand law and how this actually works.

    No say at all, huh? Try marrying a 15-year old, or your parents, or a a tree, or... Marriage is defined by society, and society dictates what is and isn't appropriate. When you enter into a legal marriage, you must abide by the rules set by society. Sorry, but you couldn't be more wrong.

    And when we talk about legal, it isn't based on everyone's opinion.
    Wrong, wrong, wrong. We could pass a law tomorrow and do away with the concept entirely "based on opinion". We could allow people to marry trees. Or their parents...

    Rights aren't granted, they are recognized. Before you go around telling others that they don't understand the law, perhaps you should learn something about it first, because you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

    15 isn't the age of consent. A law that represents just cause. So, that doesn't work.

    That's actually not true. Not here. You have to make a strong case and show just cause to violate someone's freedom. Your opinion isn't just cause.

    Rights aren't granted, they are recognized. Before you go around telling others that they don't understand the law, perhaps you should learn something about it first, because you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.
    A distinction without a difference. And I do understand. I worry you don't because you haven't addressed the actual point.
