    You want to keep posting this logical fallacy, I'll keep pointing it out: Argumentum ad antiquitatem (the argument to antiquity or tradition).

    Except that you are ignoring the legal aspect of marriage.

    State secular marriage is nothing more than a three way contract between two unrelated people of adult age, consent and ability and the state. There is no religious aspect anymore in legal marriage.

    gays have that right today.... what they want to do is redefine marriage as a union between anything and anything.
    You know, blatantly lying when everyone can see it doesn't help you. All gays want is access to the legal foundation of marriage: a three way contract between two unrelated people of adult age, consent and ability and the state.

    They want to change the definition, then claim they are being discriminated against…. That is the silly argument.
    Tell me, are gays discriminated from entering a three way contract between two unrelated people of adult age, consent and ability and the state with the person of their choosing who meets the criteria?

    oooh, I like that.

    Once again, this whole debate is asinine. I think gays may accidentally be the best trolls this planet has ever seen.

    People you need to thank this post even if you disagree, because this is the sort of thing DP needs a whole hell of a lot MORE of.

    Gays can marry gays and gays can marry heteros, so Loving doesn't apply to the issue in any way.

    You have to be the opposite sex just as you have to be unrelated. It's the same thing.

    Freedom was never absolute as everyone has to abide by the rule of law.

    If you don't govern yourself (ie; self-limit your freedom) someone else will do it for you. Wouldn't you rather your freedoms be limited on your own terms?

    Please......I would say just the opposite. If you love America you should always be trying to make it better and that includes correcting the problems of the past and not trying to bury our history.
