    You need to explain your foundation of "our history", because I don't know what you're referring to.

    Now what? The answers still no. You guys are easy....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What is and is not marriage is really not something you look to a dictionary to define--you look to society. Since marriage is a human creation, it is impossible to possess some sort of unalienable right to have your particular living arrangement classified by your neighbors as marriage. This is one of those things that should truly be left up to the public to freely decide, and not have it imposed upon them by the state or the courts. When the majority wish it to include gays, it can include gays. When the majority wish it to include more than two people, it can include more than two people.

    There is no moral justification that would allow the state to prohibit two men from living together and engaging in whatever sexual behavior they wish. But by the same token there is no moral justification for the state to define what constitutes a marriage.

    Yes, there's taking it too far in the realm of sanity.
