    Within the definition of marriage, they do have the same rights I do.

    Well, I disagree with that. The regulation changes that some are saying would be necessary wouldn't be enitrely necessary except for a little bit of wording. For example, if one of 3 persons in a marriage wished to divorce than the remaining two would be treated as one party to the divorce.

    It's just perception, really.

    I'm not. You are ignoring that marriage between a man and woman is the traditionally accepted and legal form of marriage. Gays are asking for that to be changed, straights are not.

    You can't marry her if she's your sister, or your mother....you can't marry "her" if he's your first cousin. My point is that there are a multitude of situations where civil unions would be beneficial, not just for homosexual unions.

    Again, you are operating under the assumption that ssm is the same thing as osm...it is not. The definition of marriage is between a man and a woman, and every man and every woman has equal access to it.

    It's not anymore legal than anything else. I call call myself married to my apple tree if I wish, but I ain't getting any tax breaks for it.

    The definition of marriage has changed repeatedly over the last few milennia. No reason why it couldn't be changed to accept homosexual couples. In fact, it's really only a matter of time before it does.

    True, but as of right now...it is what it is.

    In 1945 Alabama, every black and white person had equal access to education. However, blacks could only attend certain schools and whites could only attend certain schools. Each race had a right that the other didn't. Racial discrimination.

    Now, every man and woman has equal access to marriage. However, men can only enter the contract with women and women can only enter the contract with men. Each gender has a right that the other doesn't. Gender discrimination.

    When one gender can enter into a contract that another gender cannot, that's called discrimination.

    In your opinion, Mac...

    Why is it "is what it is"? What could be the root reason for "it is what it is"?

    The most reducible answer that I've seen thus far might be inferred simply as: "because".

    What form of power and/or control by 3 percent of the population have over the 97 percent that can and/or will cause the majority to want to succumb to a lesser moral standard (defining standards claimed by many non gays)?

    By the sheer act of allowing gay marriage, how will the moral fabric of non gay members of society be effected?
