    So the question is, why would you seek to deny someone else those same wonderful memories based solely on their sexual orientation alone...

You and others want to overturn the will of the people of tx as well as the many other states that don't buy into the ssm issue.
    saying that the majority support the issue is a downright lie.


    That's a downright lie.

    Polls show that the majority of Americans support same-sex marriage.

    Equal protection has nothing to do with state and local laws. Show me marriage in the Constitution and I will agree with you

    state vs federal is a straw man. This isn't a case of federal law, it's a case of equal protection. It's a case of the constitution.

    Marriage laws, whether at the state or federal level, are subject to equal protection.

    I believe in tradition, history, and precedence not sexual orientation. You want to marry your partner go to a state that allows it. Marriage has always been a state issue. show me marriage in the Constitution and I will become a supporter of your cause. You want a Constitutional Amendment? Go for it and see what happens

How can you claim the majority of the people in North Carolina support SSM? This isn't a Constitutional issue and never has been. Marriage isn't a right, it is common law and controlled by the states
    Human rights do not belong on a ballot. If that where the case slavery would not have ended, women would still not be voting, interracial marriages would never be granted, etc, etc. I mean are you serious? What do you think the will of the majority was when these issues where the hot topic of the day? It was only because the small margin of people who fought to circumvent the will of the majority that these things are no more.

    Equal protection is the strawman in this argument. Civil unions exist but no liberal activists want to overturn precedence and history. Screw them. They have the same rights as I have.

    Absolutely comical.
    No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Show me marriage in the Constitution and I will agree with you
    Equal protection of the laws, dude. It says it right there. Not "equal protection only regarding rights specifically mentioned in the constitution"

    Civil unions are equal to marriage in precisely zero states.
