    I would not be surprised if you believed that. Flat, and created 6,000 years ago seems to be in the intellectual level you occupy.

    Yes yes yes, but man is she confident of her lack of understanding. I said it before, and I will say it again--her lack of insight is sad.

    oops.
    The Defense of Marriage Act was a way to amend the full faith and credit clause of the Constitution without amending the Constitution. One could question the validity of it. And biological reasons yes, that was the original intent; biological reasons which do not exist for same sex couples. The essence is that this all became rather complicated when the Marriage License was first invented (it did not exist at the beginning, the Founders did not ask government's permission to be married). As long as the marriage license exists, denying same sex couples a marriage license is infringing upon their right to contract.

    "Biological reasons"...interesting, so you're not concerned with government intrusion as you agree biological reasons should be given for not allowing intrafamily marriages. Whay say I'm already in this government marriage contract with another, can I still marry?
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    No, I don't. I know that the US is governed by corporate interests. But you pride yourselves on being a DEMOCRACY, which means -- rule of majority!

    What you have done to the principles of the said democracy is your problem.

    Are you telling me that legislation which receives 100% of the vote can't be overturned by the courts as unconstitutional?

    You can question the biological reasons. Should a married couple reproduce, their offspring should they be closely related stands significant increase in having deformities and such. As well is known from genetics. That argument does not exist for same sex couples. The marriage contract details estate (property) issues between two people. As for polygamy, I have nothing inherently against it. If you want to talk about it as sanctioned by the federal government; there precedent against it if you wish to evoke it.
