    Need to have the courts do what you cannot sell the people? You don't have a problem with that?

    I don't need marriage to be in the Constitution. It is protected because of the 9th and 14th Amendments. You can argue against these facts til you are blue in the face, but the SCOTUS has already ruled on marriage several times, defending it as a right.

    You and others try to justify your own decisions by making claims like this. There is no known gay gene

    Again, that is your opinion, but until you can show me a gay gene then it is a personal choice issue and personal choice isn't a protect civil right

    You really need to recheck your information there. The "vast majority" in Texas does not oppose same sex marriage. In fact, there are more people who support it in Texas now than that oppose it, and support is only growing.

    In heart of Texas, support grows for same-sex marriage

    Nothing I said has anything to do with sexuality being controlled by your genes. Personal choices absolutely are protected as civil rights. If it is a choice to marry someone of the same sex or opposite sex (which it really is), then it is also a choice to marry someone of the same race or a different race. The Lovings did not have to marry each other, to be with each other. They simply chose to.

    But even more so than that, religion is a choice and is absolutely protected.

    It actually doesn't matter if it is a choice or not (I'm sure it isn't, but that's beside the point). Choices are still protected when it comes to civil rights, no matter what he thinks or others think. Religion is most definitely a choice and it is absolutely protected when it comes to civil rights. Being in an interracial or interfaith marriage is a choice, still protected when it comes to civil rights. These reasons go into why being gay is still protected when it comes to civil rights.

    Then let the people decide. could it be just like North Carolina where the people spoke, you didn't like it and went to the courts to overturn the will of the people? We are a nation of laws and you cannot seem to comprehend that reality.
