    Absolutely.

    It simply wouldn't trigger the same level of scrutiny as if it involved a fundamental right, such as "Only blacks are allowed to own guns".

    If women were denied the right to drive a car, then it would be.

    I don't have the info for you. Just google or go to Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more
    You still didn't answer Ethereal's question. You can use more than four words; I am reasonably certain Ethereal won't hold it against you.

    As for my question.....you used considerably more than four words just to say you did not know the answer.

    I provided the link. Do I need to hold your hand and walk you through it as well?

    Just take your mouse and move the arrow over the underlined part. Now double click.

    Substitute "people over 21" for "asians" and "heterosexuals" in the above sentence:

    "Drinking would be a civil rights issue if a law were passed that said only people over 21 are allowed to drink or only people over 21 can drink."

    So the drinking age is now a civil rights issue.....

    Take a conlaw course.
    I learned how to read when I was five years old. Unlike you, I don't need someone else to interpret a simple sentence for me. However, in the event I do require clarification I simply reference the Founding Fathers; you know, the guys who created our system of governance.

    Of just pick up "Equal Protection for dummies", its available at most major bookstores or amazon.com.
    Oh, I remember that one! If memory serves me right, it was written by Thomas Jefferson...or was it Benjamin Franklin? I can never remember. Anyway, it's obvious you have nothing to contribute besides ad hominem, so until you're willing to discuss the actual text of the Constitution I will simply bid you adieu.

    It absolutely is. And there is a "legitimate" governmental interest in requiring an age limitation. But you are absolutely right. It raises an equal protection is. Good for you.

    I don't believe you should be. The government has no business legitimizing the institution of marriage.

    Then we agree. The government should simply get out of the marriage business altogether and let churches marry whomever they choose. Some churches can choose to marry only heteros. Others will marry straight and gays. Sounds perfect.

    1. Only a single click is needed to jump to a hyperlink
    2. There is no such book "Equal Protection for Dummies" for sale on Amazon.
    3. Product Search - For Dummies There is no such book published in the "For Dummies" series.
    4. It would have been simpler to just admit you were making the title up, would it not? Alternatively, if you are thinking of a different title, why not simply post the ISBN # as I requested? Amazon has a number of books on the Constitution and specifically on the 14th Amendment.
