    No, you are being discriminated against, you do not choose to be discriminated against. It is not their fault that discrimination has been the norm for decades/centuries.

    And on, you should not have to move to appease the discriminators.

Equal protection and the 14th Amendment apply to the Constitution. You want marriage in the Constitution, then go for it

    Sorry have trouble reading:

    "Amendment XIV
    Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. 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."


    1. The founders didn't pass the 14th Amendment, that was done later.

    2. The 14th Amendment applies to "State law" as it specifically says.

    3. If you want to ban Civil Marriage for homosexuals the responsibility is on your to pass an amendment (one that has already failed multple times), no amendment is needed to require due process and equal protection under the law - that one was passed 146 years ago.

    Actually I think it's 30 states that now have same-sex marriage, only 20 more to go.

    Being gay isn't a choice and there is no such thing as the "Homosexual Lifestyle".

    Your desire to deny gays equal rights is based on nothing more than your own personal prejudices and that's exactly why you will fail.
    Gays have the same rights as I have, they can marry anyone of the opposite sex. You continue to make this a civil rights issue and being gay isn't a civil right just like being straight isn't a civil right. It is a personal choice issue. Now you want gay marriage, sell it to 50 states. What are you afraid of?

    You call it discrimination for a personal choice issue, I disagree

    The vast majority in my state do not support gay marriage and since marriage is a state issue that is where it resides and TX will not be authorizing same sex marriages. Why would you discriminate against the people of TX?

    Interesting breakdown. do you really want the courts making laws in this country?

    30 States with Legal Gay Marriage and 20 States with Same-Sex Marriage Bans - Gay Marriage - ProCon.org

    19 by the courts and only 3 by popular vote. Should tell you something about the will of the people
