It isn't, and should be available to all gay couples
Being gay is wrong, so they can't get married
The sanctity of marriage. No, I wasn't laughing. I was coughing. *cough* ... see?
It will set a bad example for Christian youth
I don't honestly have a good reason, but I still say no
Other (please explain)
But the fact remains religious marriage has absolutley nothing to do with legal marriage unless the people getting married want it to and vice versa.
ALso god absolutley does not have to be mentioned and is not unless people want it to be LOL
Sorry you didnt know this.
and that vast majority disagree with you, government got involved for your protection, thier intrests and your well being.
I stand by my post "since the country is split on this issue, which is WAY better than how country felt about interracial marriage, the killing of DADT because of freedoms, and that gays are already a protected class, logically I have to totally disagree with your statment. The legal debate seems easy and already established, the public one doesnt matter.
Centrist, We may be talking past each other.
I'm saying that if DOMA falls, as it should really, and SSM becomes an issue between the states, an amendment to the constitution will be demanded by trads. That would take it out of the hands of the courts.

people tried to give it wings and it failed:
The most recent Congressional vote to take place on the proposed Amendment occurred in the United States House of Representatives on July 18, 2006 when the Amendment failed 236 yea to 187 nay votes, falling short of the 290 yea votes required for passage in that body. The Senate has only voted on cloture motions with regard to the proposed Amendment, the last of which was on June 7, 2006 when the motion failed 49 yea to 48 nay votes, falling short of the 60 yea votes required to proceed to consideration of the Amendment and the 67 votes which would be required to pass the amendment.

And now with attitudes changing about gay marriage I doubt it will go any where.
