    An activist court is one that rules in ways you disagree with. It's one of those laughable terms that is mostly without meaning.

    Funny how they always limit a marriage to just this country and basing it on Christianity which this country was based on while completely ignoring the fact that Christianity dates back a couple of thousand years. Yet the church didn't even get involved in marriages until just a few hundred years ago. (1563 to be exact)

    Marriage at its heart is a religious commitment steeped in the tradition of starting a family.

    To the shallow and anti-religious, it is a contract to be nullified as soon as a chance to **** someone comes along and you get caught.
    all you like, but anthropology will out. Marriage is a property contract.

    Do you dispute the fact women were treated like chattel?

    Are gay relationships "equal" to heterosexual relationships? Isn't that the issue?

    Yep, two consenting adults of legal standing.

    So... I can marry my grandma and such a relationship is 'equal' to a heterosexual relationship so long as we're both consenting adults?

    You can give your grandma power of attorney and you can give your grandma total inheritance of your estate. However, if you were having an intimate relationship with your grandma, the state has a vested interest in stopping said relationship due to the genetic issues involved in your procreating with grandma.

    I wouldn't do it personally, but whatever floats your boat.

    Civil rights means protecting the things you hate as well as the things you like.
