    So in the name of equality you want the federal government telling who can and who can't be married? We might as well go back to the father choosing whom his off spring will marry. No love, just benefits.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    And the rights of those who desire multiple spouses?

    So if you hate gay marriage being at the for front, blame the right for not agreeing to legalize it.
    I don't care what the right does, I'm not a republican.

    I believe it should be allowed only if all parties consent.

    The gay "plight" is nowhere near comparable to the grueling struggle of the black rights movement. It's downright insulting to equate the two.

    Im not saying its equal i was simply showing him that we cannot leave everything up to the states. Sometimes the "states rights" route is not the best way to go.

    Clearly the history hasn't been as bloody for both groups, but they are still equal in concept. Whether born gay, straight, black, white, tall, or short, you were born that way. No one should ever be discriminated against for something they were born with.

    I see no oppression. Oppression means to bully or exploit, cruelly, overbearing, tyrannical. Slavery was oppression of those who were slaves. Gays can be legally married in nine states and soon I believe there will be more. Gays are not being oppressed by 41 one states saying they do not believe in or allow gay marriages. In fact marriages might be defined as being oppressive in many ways and these states may be stopping that oppression from happening.

    Gays can be married, nothing is stopping them. Benefits may or may not be coming depending on which state they live in. But if one loves another, benefits shouldn't enter the equation. You make it sound as benefits are the only thing important to a relationship or marriage. I don't think so.

    I think you can call 41 states not allowing gay marriage many things, oppression is not one of them.
