If your state has a different perspective, that's your state's business.

    Why do you want to redistribute wealth from homosexual couples to heterosexual couples?

    also your state and people do not get to infringe on rights, try reading the constitution or reading some of the rulings lol

    the bigots and or people against equal rights in your state will simply have to deal with the fact its not their decision nor was it ever, thats what being fixed
    It was always the state's decision. And hopefully, it will continue to be forever, but it's not looking that way. State's rights are being eroded very quickly and to the detriment of this country, as a whole.

    Like I said, right-wing rhetoric about individual liberty is pure bull****. You people support the freedom to suppress other peoples' freedom.

    Luckily that is not how civil rights work, civil rights are there for everybody, not just those belonging to your conservative ilk.

    So you want to get rid of tax benefits for heterosexual married people too then? After all, marriage is just a tax dodge for straight people, right?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Whether the state does or does not endorse homosexual marriages has no bearing on your freedom. Freedom has nothing to do with something others have to give you and state sanctioned marriage is a concession from the state and it's no restriction of your freedom if you don't have it. Anyone that considers not being married to be a restriction of their freedom is a little nuts, anyway.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Not at all. I think the state has the right to create tax benefits for relationships that it wants to encourage without being forced to give that incentive to relationships it doesn't not want to endorse. Our state doesn't see the point in endorsing homosexual marriage and giving incentives to promote them, so it doesn't.

    So you'd be good with, say, white heterosexuals getting tax benefits and black heterosexuals not getting tax benefits? After all, in some areas of the country, that might be what the people in the state might want.
