yes,-- everybody should be treated equal
No--some people should recieve preferential treatment
When it comes to two consenting adults and a union/contract, the state is not in the business of ‘allowing’ anything.
The state should not be our ruler, we rule our own lives.

Just let them rant, save your energy for when a heavy weight, educated opponent shows up.
His argument against gay marraige has always been founded in it's not about the family. And for most gays it is not from what I have seen and read. It is about validating being gay in our society. It has very little to do with the family or the raising of children by the family.
The family unit is the corner stone of our civilization. It was not until the last 50 years or so the family unit has been attacked and brought to it's knees with the advent of quickie divorces and marriages etc. Marraige is or was hard work, it is not easy and was never meant to be. It used to be something not to be entered into lightly. Now people do it for fun and then divorce the next day. Brittany Spears anyone?

No Lives Matter
Marriage as a technical contract is not an element of cultural universal.
I would also like to point out that the legal institution of marriage in the US is not a private contract; it is a municipal license issued by the state.

Nope. Not a single state requires children for marriage, and thousands of people get married every year knowing they will not, or cannot, have children."You may stick to your ridiculous extremist position, but nobody else is going to go for it. Marriage isn't just for children for many thousands of people. Deal with it." - misterman
The part marked in red is as I said a fabrication, lie, not true.
You couldn't be more wrong.
Now, lay off the "lie" word, it's over the top.
