    Whatever, You can call it corned beef hash for all I care. There is zero reason besides bigotry and some moral authoritarian power trip in telling consenting adults that they can't enjoy a privilege that others can. If Peter want to marry harry then so what? Let em' marry till their hearts content.

    but there is a difference between a right and a privilege........this is causing problems because people do not understand that difference.

    Whatever. Why shouldn't two consenting adults that happen to be of the same sex be able to enjoy the same privilege? Were blacks told that riding on a bus was a "privilege" so don't complain about taking a seat in the back?

    Laws change. If this were 1965 would you be arguing against interracial marriage because it was against the law?

    why is it when a person say marriage is not a RIGHT.......its assumed a person is against SSM?

    marriage is a privilege, it not a right.....its a privilege of government.

    Why shouldn't two consenting adults of the same sex be able to marry one another? This is a civil rights issue and the winds are blowing in the right direction.
