    I'm sorry, did we change the subject to animal sacrifice and polygamy? Are some people allowed to do this while others are not?


    Seems like that instead of addressing the point, you've created a red herring argument.

    M'kay. What religion embraces SSM?
    Unitarian Universalism to name one. Reform Judaism to name another.

    And defining marriage as between a man and a woman is inherently unconstitutional because it denies people equal protection under the law.

    I've developped a copromise definition of "Marriage is a lifelong bond between one man and one woman. Any relationship that doesn't fit this bill, such as same sex unions or unions involving one or more divorced persons, will be called a civil union", but it always seem to get rejected by people on both sides of the debate.

    I wouldn't accept that definition.

    I'm talking about marriage, which is allowed for heterosexual couples (animal sacrifice and polygamy are not allowed for anyone). Thus, disallowing SSM violates religious freedom in ways that dissallowing animal sacrifice and polygamy do not.

    That's why it is a red herring.

    I know, but neitehr would most anti-gay marriage people (due to so many of them being divorced themselves), which is why it acts as a perfect compromise.
