    There is no set definition of marriage. In fact freedom of speech gives every citizen the right to define their marriages as they see fit. Legally, marriage is defined in its function and legal purpose, not in who can or cannot enter into it.

    You are getting kind of out of the mainstream there.

    It is part of case law, which is a major part of our laws, whether you agree with it or not.

    No just pointing out the legal aspects of this case. Marriage is a legal recognition/set up of kinship, the legal relationship of spouses. There is nothing religious about legal marriage and also nothing to so with children/procreation. Tradition doesn't mean jack to the legal arguments.

    Ah, so it is not in there. In that case, it really does not exist relevant to the Supreme Court. Just some lower court ruling that means nothing to the upcoming case.

    But, marriage is between a man and a woman, or this would not be going before the Supreme Court. Idiots that they may be.

    You keep telling yourself that but it simply isn't how the SCOTUS works. Levels of scrutiny does absolutely exist to the Court and whining from those who want to use state laws to oppress others won't change that fact.

    Nope, it isn't, at least not only. Most of the US allows same sex couples to enter into the exact same marriages opposite sex couples enter into.

    I'm not the one saying marriage should be open for everyone. I suggest you actually read your links before posting them.
