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