    You mentioned government contracts, not me. You stated marriage is nothing but a government approved contract. I'm asking why I cannot enter into this contract with my sister.

    If 94% of total voters is 100% of those who voted, then 47% of 94% of total voters will be 50% of those who voted. And 49% of 94% of total voters would be bigger than 47% of 94% of total voters that formed 50% of those who voted.

    50 is half, .5, 1/2. The 49 listed is 49% of the total votes for the guy. The total votes include ALL THE VOTES for the position. It's not 94%, because that IS NOT ALL THE VOTES for that position, that is 94% of the votes for that position. Stop being stupid.

    Are you telling me a person who will get 3% of votes will win against a person who will get 33% of votes?

    It is a government contract. States, however, have made incest illegal. At least in terms of being formally recognized. There are biological reasons for that related to reproduction. Those arguments don't exist for same sex marriage.

    If gays have a right to rub their gayness into our faces, then we have an equal right to oppose it.
    Do you feel the same way about people of color?

    I'm not sure you'd have success with someone with this level of ignorance towards fractions. The backtracking is astounding. And the irony is all the effort going into her trying not to look like a dumbass is having the opposite effect.

    Excuse me.....the Defense of Marriage Act signed by Bill Clinton is a federal law.

    And biological reasons did you say?

    oops.
