    Marriage is a contract, and as such always requires consent. Things which cannot give consent (such as animals) cannot enter into legal contract.

    Not likely. Children were treated as little adults up until a couple centuries ago and as property before then. The introduction of Developmental Psychology has had the greatest influence on our laws in this regard since it allowed us to realize the degree to which young children were cognitively incapable of understanding the risks of many behaviors and decisions. Reasonable men recognized this fact and have changed the law to acknowledge it.

    Also, I'm still waiting for you to acknowledge you lied and apologize to me.

    so...? Someday the sun may turn purple. Is this a psychic glance into your future? You do a good job of making an opposite argument whether is makes sense or not. But, you are still loved by many, Mac...

    Ah, now you are ignoring me. Good choice for someone who lies.

    So tell us mac, since you believe that homosexuality is unnatural, does that play into your moral stance on the issue? Let's hear your honest reply for once.

    Consent laws contradict no other laws, especially when it comes to things that don't have rights to begin with. Current marriage laws that bar same sex couples from entering into marriage conflict with Equal Protection laws.

    Marriage is a right that always involves legally consenting individuals who have their rights under the Constitution, even if some of those rights have been removed via due process. There is very little chance that we are going to give any rights to a toaster.
    "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    kinda like you ignored me when I called you on your hypocrisy?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
