    You are seen as equal under the law. You are in no way not given the same benefits if you fall to that level. Its called a social safety net. Its like saying "I am not 65 or 66 why dont I get medicare or social security"? Do older people have "more rights than you"? No, they do not.

    Then you agree everyone is not treated equally (Medicare and SS were not mentioned for a specific reason)...

    Oh. So having to meet established preconditions in order to access a benefit doesn't constitute being denied equality under the law? That's interesting.

    I'm not seeing where that has been asserted...

    I think you are misreading - I am pointing out that your logic is self-defeating.

    The constitution took that power away. The courts are just recognizing that.

    Defining marriage as between a man and a woman is clearly a classification of gender.

    14th. You mentioned the courts, I figured you had at least basic familiarity with the decisions they made.
