    True on Freedom of Speech but as far as marriage goes I've asked this question a few times please show me in the US Const. Bill of Rights or any US Code that allows anyone to marry anyone or what is defined as a marriage.

    I can marry a black gal. Use to be that was that true under the law and at one time both of us could be sentenced to prison time.

    Now considering the 14th amendment to the US Constitution why can not a woman marry a woman just like a man can marry a woman?

    I don't know where you get these stats at but if they make you feel good go for it...........There are states that have voted over 80% aggainst gay marriage and the lowest percent against was around 52% in La La land............If you average all the states out you will come close to 70% against...........

    Because black people (race) are a protected class. Sexual orientation is not.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Until the federal government is able to garner enough support to act upon it, gay marriage advocates need to understand that their agenda needs to be approved by the general public. Yes, it sucks, but we need to accept the reality. People shouldn't burn the streets every time this happens. Time will make this happen, thankfully.
