    If you can't recognize the difference, I'm not going to bother.

All couples are covered under the same laws pertaining to spouses. There is no true legal change in how marriage works for same sex couples than how it works legally for opposite sex couples.
    I see we are now in fantasy land. Race is a different issue than sex. The attack on the Constitution continues. It will eventually be allowed in all states, but that doesn't mean that the federal government has ever been granted any power by the Constitution to force states to do it.

    I don't believe in it, but if a state okay's it, so be it. If a federal judge subverts the will of the people in a state, and forces it on them, I've got a problem with that. Everyone should have a problem with that. But I know the left, and it's quite alright, if they get there way, the Constitution be damned.

    I dont think she said 'no more marriage' or 'marriage is bad'. I think she meant that the govt shouldnt be involved in it.

    Do you think most people get married because of the govt benefits? If that were the case, I bet alot more single mothers would be married.....

    No worries. That (bold) is what sounds absurd but who cares? No one has to care what those people think....it only matters to those who desire it

    Esp. since they are getting it.

    Not really. If you're going with mammals, there are plenty of herds out there *Papa Bull*...so you'd support polygamy again?

    Dream on....they have seen too much progress to give up now.

    Not to mention that plenty of people outside the LGBT community will continue to vote on their behalf. Like me

    And that is their goal as well, just like for many straight families....**to have families**. And they do, and will continue to do so, married or not but at least SSM provides additional benefits and legal protections for their kids too.

    According to a bunch of states, they sure did. Otherwise the govt wouldnt have had to 'force' them to recognize interracial marriage. Many states had decided not to do that.
