    No, the connection's pretty solid as long as you're not living in a fantasy world. Especially if you actually understand the underlying legal issues. I'm sure you believe otherwise, though, and frankly I have better things to do than to spend yet another evening explaining to people with no respect for reality how wrong their fantasies are. Ta.

    No, I'm asking you because you tried to connect being gay to being born black. Interracial marriage wasn't about "being born black". Interracial marriage was about a person being able to choose their spouse regardless of race. Same sex marriage is about a person being able to choose their spouse regardless of sex/gender. And both of these should be allowed because marriage is neither race nor sex/gender dependent, nor does either type of relationship harm anyone in itself.

    Why does society recognize marriage, and/or why should society recognize marriage?

    No, you're asking Aderleth because he tried to connect being gay to being born black. But watch out, he may walk out on the discussion.

    Because people want to be protected in those relationships and "spouse" is a legally recognized family member. Society benefits from marriages because of stability of relationships, which has been shown to provide many benefits to society, and having an adult who has agreed (via marriage license) to take on a certain amount of responsibility, including financial responsibility for this other adult should they not be able to. Plus, for those couples, same sex or opposite sex, that do want to raise children, marriage is the most stable and beneficial relationship to raise children in, no matter who the biological parents of those children are.

    No, Interracial marriage was about blacks being black. They had no control over their skin tone, yet they were still discriminated against. Not all gays are born gay, hence, one of the reasons it took so much longer for the SC to make a ruling. What's sad is that they caved in to a bunch of perverts.

    No, you tried to connect the two. He connected wanting to be in a same sex relationship with wanting to be in an interracial relationship, which is a valid connection, particularly considering how our marriage laws function.

    No it wasn't. It was about a black person wanting to be married to a white person and that white person also wanting to be married to that black person and people in society feeling that such relationships were "immoral" and wrong and harmed children.

    And those who wish to be in a same sex relationship have no control over their sex/gender, yet they are being discriminated against.

    No, he connected the two because he actually used them both in his example. There is zero valid connection, and I'm surprised, yet again, that a so-called Conservative is defending gay marriage.
