So no, don't sit there and tell me that it is equal and that there isn't a right by straight people to marry the person of their choosing. Their choice of marriage partner is a natural and evident progression of the bonds they make as lifelong mates and that natural and evident progression is denied to the homosexual couple while snarky and smarmy detractors shrilly cry that homosexuals have the same rights because they, like you, are forced to marry the opposite sex? No, that's not even acceptable anymore and it only shows how the anti-gm crowd devalues the sanctity of marriage far more than anyone else.
That they would be more ok with two people marrying as long as they were of the opposite sex but without any of the other bonds that progress to the desire to marry to start with? It's that important that they deny the same progression to loving and bonded homosexuals while encouraging sham marriages between two individuals just wanting the paper...and all over making sure there's the right ratio of lady parts to gentleman parts?
That's just sick and very reflective of the fact that under the guidance and "protection" of heterosexuals, marriage has all but become a joke...a social event measured in importance by how big the party was. A fifty percent divorce rate, 24 hour publicity marriages, auctioning off 50 bachelors to one woman on national TV...this is what marriage has become on your watch. Time to pass the torch to some people who really want it and seem to know its significance enough to fight for it.
