    Actually no special right would exist as you also could Civilly Marry someone of the same gender. Right now though...
    In some states...

    Man can Civilly Marry Woman = Legal
    Civil Marriage between the same sex = illegal

    So the treatment based on the gender composition of the couple is not treated the same.

    In other states...

    Man can Civilly Marry Woman = Legal
    Civil Marriage between the same sex = Legal


    So you in reality you are asking that heterosexual retain an existing special right to Civilly Marry.

    Was it a "special right" when inter-racial couples sought the right to marry the person they love Navy? After all...at the time people like you would say that they had the "same right" to marry a person of their same race, just like everyone else. Right?

    LOL....I call major BS here. You said the same thing about the military and DADT. You said, if the military changed their position you would accept it. THAT didn't last 24 hours before you were on this site crying to the world. You ain't fooling anyone NP.

    I suspect that NP disagrees with the court cases, and court precedence (same thing, I think? Prior court cases ARE court precedence), and disagrees with the interpretation you are using for the laws.

    You can't prove rights by pointing to said rights though, that's just crazy. If you meant a specific understanding of rights, quantified by the "laws, court cases, and court precedence" you mention, then I suspect NP disagrees with that understanding of said rights.

    FFS do you cite some ambiguous "facts" for everything?

    I'm sorry, since you keep claiming this is a "fact"...are you suggesting that there are no court cases, laws, and precedence suggesting what you call "equal rights" isn't protected?

    You seem to be cherry picking laws and court cases and proclaiming only those you cherry pick as "facts".

    For example, Sevcik v. Sandoval and Jackson v. Ambercrombie disagree with your claim, that's a "fact".

    Right now there's conflicting laws, court cases, and precedences regarding "equal rights" as you term it...so claiming one part of it as "FACT" is really nothing but over inflating the worth of your OPINION.
