    This is a state issue, but really, marriage shouldn't be a legal/civil issue at all. Leave it to religion where it ultimately belongs. If gays want to marry, they could find a church to marry them-no problem.

    Equal rights and discrimination is not a state isse.
    This is about LEGAL marriage and as long as it is around so should equal legal marriage rights gays.
    Religious marriage has no place in this debate.

    I'm only saying that marriage itself is ultimately a religious issue. If the government had no dealings with it, it would be less complicated which is good. But I believe this is a state issue. The fed is far too involved these days.

    Marriage is a state issue. Churches don't issue marriage licenses, states do. You are correct in that the federal government has no business in this though.

    It's pretty simple actually and yet everyone wants to make it so damned complicated. If states A, B, C, D and E want to legalize gay marriage, I have no problem with that. If states F, G, H, I and J want to ban gay marriage (or define marriage as being between a man and a woman), I have no problem with that either. If gays want to marry, move to a state that legalizes it. It's no different than if someone moves from state X to state Y because the tax laws are far more lenient in state Y than they are in state X.

    Equal rights shouldn't be a state issue.

    But defining "equal rights" is not that simple when it comes to gay marriage. Can a man marry a sheep? Can a woman marry a horse? Wouldn't you be infringing on the rights of the man and the woman if you denied them the right to marry who they loved? Is this a ridiculous comparison? Of course it is, but to some a man marrying a man or a woman marrying a woman is just as preposterous.

    It is up to states to decide who can marry and who can't. However, as Loving taught us, the laws as to who can and cannot marry cannot violate the constitution. So while yes, marriage is a state issue, it does not mean states can be allowed to exclude groups unlawfully. SSM is on the way to being allowed across the country. It is coming, and it is coming soon. When DOMA goes down, that will spell the end, since at that point, every state and the federal government will have to recognize any SSM from any state.

    You could SAY its ultimately a religious issue but the fact remains its not.

    The easiest solution would be equal rights and not discriminating.

    ANd marriage in general is a state issue but equal rights and discrimination is not and one that ruling is made similar to the ruling that was made on interracial marriage the states can stick it.

    lastly if you want government not to grant ANY marriages thats fine but thats a different topic.

    correct it will happen in the not so far future and the states will have to abide as they should.

    The DOMA case is, if not a sure thing, close to it. That will be the catalyst.
