    Using your logic those laws were just as "equal".

    But the concept of equal rights as motivation to change law should be consistent. So if he is okay with changes to law that have been made in the past which are rooted in the concept of equal rights then his issue with its application to this law change is really about his own prejudice.

    Not in most states. And in many states it's still illegal for gays to marry - which includes civil unions. I guess you don't live anywhere near the Bible Belt, huh?

    Brace yourself for the very predictable responses you are about to receive. (hint...it was satan)

    No. I was impressed that the candidate was a bigot both towards those who were homosexual as well as those with autism.

    Doesn't work that way. Marriage is mainly about creating a legal kinship between two people. We track all kinships, whether done by birth certificates, adoption records, birth records themselves (before there were actually birth certificates), or now DNA test results (although these can be overridden by certain court rulings or overriding legal documents). There is a reason that our spouses' relatives are known as "inlaws". They are recognized as family members because of the legal kinship established by marriage.

    No, it isn't a mistake. Humans evolved, a percentage are homosexual, it is that way in nature.
