    The majority of those who support same sex marriage are straight. In fact, more straight people support same sex marriage than oppose it.

    End of.

    You don't think it's a right and that's very cute but in the end, it will be the law of the land.

    Just a few formalities to take care of.

    You and your discriminatory pals have already lost this fight.

    What part of the voting process confuses you? At one point in time, a group of people vote on something. Later, the people who can vote change, they change their minds, and they simply don't care or care more about voting. Old people (more likely to oppose same sex marriage) die (just a fact of life). Younger people (more likely to support same sex marriage) become old enough to vote. Many more people change their minds to supporting same sex marriage than opposing it or at the least grow to not care enough to vote against ssm or for a ban. However, many states have a process for either voting for such things or putting them on the ballot to begin with that doesn't allow this change to be reflected within this swift timeframe that we are seeing this change of support.

    But at the very least, it is unfair treatment, which is something that the Constitution protects us from when it comes to the laws, which marriage is.
    What unfair treatment is there in this issue that a civil union will not solve? This is incredible and typical leftwing bs

    There are amendments to the Constitution that had to be passed by the "majority" so tell me how that happened? You have so little faith in the American people. let them decide, not justices

    What unfair treatment is there calling it marriage? The right, nor religion own the definition of marriage.

    Good, put it on the ballot instead of having laws overturned by an non elected judge. Apparently it doesn't bother you that 19 states had their will changed by a justice. Wonder how you would feel if a judge changed your will on an issue that you supported? You don't seem to understand the will of the people at all or how laws are made and changed, not by judges. Like far too many you don't like a law you go to a judge to change it. One of these days that position is going to bite you in the ass.

    People have the right to move if they don't like the laws in a particular state. All your arguments are typical of the leftwingers in this country whose arrogance is on full display. Yep, let's let an non elected judge overturn the laws of the people. Brilliant strategy

    I told you. You can marry a woman and I can't, and it is only because I am a woman. That is unfair because it is the laws that are preventing a legal marriage between a man and a man or a woman and a woman, but allow for someone of the other sex to marry them. Sex discrimination.
