    The 14th amendment say nothing about SSM or any marriage and if the originators see what you are doing to it they would roll over in their graves.

    The 14th Amendment is equal protection under law. SSM is an equal protection issue. Period, end of discussion.

    Civil rights (and yes, SSM IS a civil rights issue) should NEVER be left to the whim of the majority. The will of the people can also be "tyranny."

    That's about the only restriction we want.
    "Stealing marriage"? If gay people can get married, does that mean straight people can't or something?

    Please tell me how a gay couple marrying affects your straight marriage in any way, shape or form.

    It was never intended to address marriage of any kind.

    So what? It was never originally intended to address lots of things that have since fallen under the purview of equal protection. Most of which, I'm sure, you're fine with, but you have such a bug up your ass about gay people that you are perfectly willing to deny then equal protection under law because you think they're icky.

    If it was not addressed then it should not be referenced for any marriage be in straight or gay.
