    It originated to consolidate and pass on family wealth...or at least holdings. Didnt have to be religious or use a religious ceremony.

    We already have civil, non-religious marriage for straight couples. No reason to change it just for gays. That is not 'equal protection under the law.'

    And the word is important to gay people for the exact same reasons it is to straight people.

The point being that said religion was giving you the thumbs up to make babies and not feel bad about it. The point of this is that marriage is a concept that stems from a religious institution that was recognized by the state. As such the state lacks the power to create gay marriage because marriage is not created by the state, only recognized. If this is an issue of rights then options exist such as civil unions. While there would be some who would oppose them it would be trivial effort if the homosexual rights groups refocused to equalize the rights available under said unions.

    I think you are confusing Marriage with Holy Matrimony

    Thos are 2 of the 4 possibilties before SCOTUS.
    Have you never read a SCOTUS decision? No matter how they rule, they'll leave holes to crawl through. Heck, read Roe v Wade.

    And just NO to the pathetic and malicious comment. Doing their job faithfully is more like it. The feds are the ones not doing theirs.

    Maybe I oversimplifed in SSM.

    R v W is off topic

    I did not know that. Please name this man, tell us when Texas executed him, and explain briefly the proof that he was not guilty.
