    Are you saying that a baby isn't a citizen? Are you saying that a Constitutional right shouldn't apply to all citizens? Which part don't you get?

    Arent you asking two questions?

    [should] Gay marriage be legal in America?
    [should] Gay marriage be a constitutional right in America?

    The asnwer to #1 is up to each state
    The answer to #2 is no, as marriage is a privilege, not a right.

    Are you saying a baby is able to enter into a legal contract? This is almost as stupid as "Obama is not a natural born citizen".

    You just can't stand it that Barry isn't NBC..... but I degress.

    If Marrige is a Constitutional right it must apply equally to all citizens, correct? Please answer that question.... it's a simple question that has one of two answers, yes or no.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    There will always be more important things to discuss when people want something back-burnered. Why would you wish for gay people not to have the full marital rights that straights do?

    My philosophy is that marriage, "sacred" - for life,etc is for the man and the woman; not two of the same sex or a man and his horse....
    I see nothing "gay" about two homosexuals...Their "wiring" is messed up - no fault of their own..And homosexuals MUST NOT be persecuted as they have been in the past..
    This was WRONG.
    But I feel that marriage is a sacred pact between a man and a woman - it has always been that way..
    And YES, I do know that things always being a certain way does not make them right..
    But the institution of marriage must be respected.
    I'm sure that most would agree that we have many more important things to do...reforms in almost every area...

    No, since we have a graduated system of rights. 17 year olds do not have the right to vote. Yet at the age of 18 it must apply equally.

    "Their wiring is messed up"? Seriously??

    And a man and his horse. Could you be any more insulting.
