    the burden of proof is yours. I'm not the one who wants something to change.

    I already gave one answer, which you ignored. if it's not good enough for you, there's nothing I can do about it.

    Gay people cannot marry the consenting adult of their choice.

    Actually, since your premise is a call for action, in that it is a restriction, as opposed to simple tolerance, which is inaction, the burden of proof is on you.

    Lies. People are corny when they have to lie to pretend they're right.

    Ahem. Sorry.

    No.

    marriage is the union of a man and a woman. marriage is available to everyone regardless of sexual orientation.

    the union of a man and a man is not a marriage, because marriage is the union of a man and a woman. until that definition changes, that's the way it is.

    When interracial couples were prevented from marrying, what was the definition of marriage then?

    well, then. you say the majority will be happy with gay marriage, ignoring the fact that the majority just overturned gay marriage in one of the most liberal states of the union. I say, although it is impossible to tell until it comes to a vote in every state, that your assumption that most people want gay marriage is unfounded and probably wrong. given that, I do not accept your answer to my question of what society will gain in allowing gay marriage.

    I hope this is clear.

    I'm not the one who wants the law to discriminate. Where in the world did you learn that the burden of proof is on whoever wants something to change?

    Actually you did NOT give an answer. You said "it's not my concern." Let's try again: How does society benefit from gays not being allowed to marry?

    Men (unlike women) do not have the right to marry a man. Women (unlike men) do not have the right to marry a woman. Gender discrimination, pure and simple.

    Way to ignore my other point, by the way.
