    And many American Catholics don't care what the Roman Catholic Church says about sex or gays in reality. This is why most Catholics have used some form of birth control (such as contraceptives or condoms or sterilization) and over half here in the US support same sex marriage.

    No it's not. You really do not know the meaning of the word "oxymoron".

    And no, it's not. You don't own the meaning of the word "marriage", nor do opposite sex couples or religions.

    You're correct, I do not own the meaning, the courts do not define the meaning, society does that...

    Society has already added same sex couples into the meaning. In reality, the laws in how they function define legal marriage, which easily includes same sex couples.

    If that were the case, there would be no need to run to the courts when decisions were made by THE PEOPLE that a few had a problem with accepting...

    Nope. That isn't how our laws work. We were talking about the definition of marriage. That already includes same sex couples, whether a majority in certain areas agree or not. Some people had a problem accepting that the laws pertaining to marriage do not in any way prevent two people of the same sex from marrying, from being considered spouses legally. The people are still limited by the guarantees of the Constitution, including equal protection of the laws.

    How equal are you willing to go? Would you accept polygamous marriages? How about incestuous marriages? When one begins messing with societal norms, the proverbial can of worms is opened if you can find a court that agrees...
