    Medically, legally, and financially.

    The question isn't about removing the government from marriage.
    It's simply about allowing everybody to have equal access to what already exists.
    Obvisouly it shouldnt be. I answered the question. I would not vote for a law which gives the govt power to regulate marriage.

    The Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment 9.

    That oughtta shut 'em up.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    But since it already does.

    So that's not what you're voting on here. As made clear in the OP.

    The only thing to vote on here is whether or not gay people should be able to marry or not as it's currently defined by our government and legal systems.


    The government's being involved in marriage isn't the topic here.

    nope

    having "feelings" alone that gay sex or gay marriage is wrong is NOT bigotry, sorry.

That goes for state govts too. Marriage is a social choice, nothing to do with govt.
    so you are deflecting from the OP, got it

    It seems to me if you're going to ban someone from being banned from getting legally married, you're voting 'Yes' on allowing them to get legally married.

    2.)Btw - how is this an "equal rights" issue in the first place? (meh, awaiting the stock answer...)
    1.)yep i screwed up the cut and paste because originally answer two was over the limit and when i fixed it i didnt check it (making it not fixed lol, ill ask a mod to fix it)

    2.) easy see all the court cases, legal precedence and the laws, rights and statues based on them. if facts are stock so be it.

    I think most of us can figure out that if someone votes the second option it's because they're a homophobic douchebag.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    In the case of gay rights, there is certainly no shortage of homophobic douchebags in the world, and some of them certainly find their way into this forum, but I think it prudent to distinguish between the homophobes and those who might happen to take political positions that aren't quite fully in line with one's own.
    Yes, with this issue, the shoe fits. A political position that is rooted in hate and bigotry is just that.
