    Why are you gay marriage advocates for gay marriage when you seem to know so little about gay marriage?

    Wow you just absolutely don't know what you are talking about.

    Conaway v. Deane & Polyak [edit]

    The Court of Appeals, Maryland's highest court, agreed to hear the state's appeal in 2006, bypassing the intermediate court.[34] To the surprise of spectators, there were almost no questions from the judges during oral argument, which took place on December 4, 2006,[34] causing speculation that the court may have taken the appeal just to reverse the Circuit Court ruling.[34] On September 18, 2007, the court issued its decision in Conaway v. Deane, overturning the trial court ruling for the plaintiffs in a 4–3 decision, and holding that the statutory ban on same-sex marriage did not violate the Maryland Constitution.[5]

    They upheld the ban in 2007

    Why are you so against it when you know so little about it?

    Still looking. I've found an article on the Internet about the State Supreme Court of Vermont upholding the same benefits of marriage to same-sex marriages in 1999. Maybe it was Vermont not Maryland. Will continue to look.

    Why has it been proven to you since you don't know why judges voted for gay marriage?

    Try Vermont, instead. I think I mistook the SSC of Maryland for the SSC of Vermont ruling. Sorry for coming down so hard on you, SSC of Maryland (although, it seems, you decreed gay marriage as well) .

    As I'm reading the Internet article further, I read that the SSC of Vermont upheld, in 1999, that gay unions should have the same rights and responsibilites as marriages (which I totally agree with).
    Unions are not the same as marriages. As it should be.

    I just did, publically. Now, why do you believe gays should have gay marriage? What's the constitutionality?
