    Nice try at another wild spin.

    Defining marriage as between one man and one woman does not automatically make same sex 'marriages' illegal.

    The government has whatever rights we allow it to have. And yes, it has the ability to grant legal personhood to a turnip if it wants to or deny it to a turnip (or first term fetus, pretty much the same thing).

    But that same government does not have the right to define 'marriage' because in a way that you think denies someone their rights....
    Is it the government's "right" to define LEGAL marriage? Sure, who said it isn't?

    But there is no doubt that it denies rights. There is no doubt that the current definition of marriage discriminates and is not equal. No doubt whatsoever.

    Mirror?
    What are you talking about?

    Say what? Legally defining marriage as one man one woman doesn't make state recognition of gay marriage illegal?

    DOMA invalidates same-sex wedded couples' marriages when they move to a state that doesn't recognize their marriage or are even just visiting a state that doesn't recognize their marriage, while they are in that state. That is against the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the 14th Amendment. If they were an opposite sex wedded couple, there are no such restrictions, no matter why they are married or even if they do or can have children with each other. That is unequal treatment and wrong according to the 14th Amendment. All heterosexual couples must have their marriage recognized by other states, even if the couple would not have been allowed to legally marry in that other state. Congress should have to show why it is promoting the "general welfare" by making such a restriction.
    "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Again.

    It's not a matter of restricting it's a matter of recognition.

    It's not a matter of criminalizing or discriminating against all the other forms of marriages, unions or contracts,.... it's a matter of recognizing the one most essential to the fabric of our familes, lives, culture, society, etc. our 'general welfare' if you will.

    And I'll ask again,...

    "How is it that you (no you personally rogue) are all ok with the government defining 'personhood' in a way that excludes pre-natal children and denies them their rights and personhood,.... makes it legal to KILL them,..... But you are appaled at the thought of that same government defining 'marriage' as it sees fit to 'promote the general welfare?"

    Oh!

    And our pets.

    We love our pets and demand the right to claim them as our spouses. (for legal purposes only)
    Whenever someone trots out these pathetic "arguments," I instantly know I'm dealing with someone who is either (a) hopelessly ignorant, (b) a sad little bigot on the losing end of the gay marriage argument, or (c) both.
