    Yeah, I think of the peoples rights when discussing government action. Something you clearly forgot about along the way.

    That's a rhetorical question. The answer is no.
    For most people who are in opposition, it is a matter of sincerely held religious beliefs. You might have difficulty understanding that since most of your positions do not seem all that sincere.

    No, I have no doubt that opponents of gay rights are sincere in their bigotry.

    What an impressive display of completely missing the point.

    so until some one can give a link showing there is a law giving the right to marriage this thread is pointless

    Which wouldn't really apply here since it has nothing to do with legal marriage. The only reason they should get equal treatment according to existing law is due to the fourteenth amendment. Otherwise, there is no reason to expand legal marriage, but only reason to eliminate the legal aspect.

    It's out there. Look at Loving v. Virginia, for example.

    I agree that all legal recognition of marriage should be abolished, but that wasn't one of the options.

    WOW

    thank you for making a completely failed post so fast, i thought it go at least to page two

    translation: you are deflecting and cant read the OP
    also the fact is there are currently laws and case precedence court rulings that make marriage and gay marriage a right.
    SCOTUS as determined it to be a right 14 times.

    now instead of deflecting, going off topic and ignoring facts feel free to vote or continue exposing your failed post.

    lol not weighted at all, they are actually REALITY based but i admit thats ONLY true because i have 3 options.

    If i would have left off the third then yes it would haave been weighted and YOUR title for option number too would be spot on in that case
