    Yes, yes it is.
    We don't need a reasonable rationale to institute SSM. It is the government that needs a reasonable rationale to prevent it. That is what the 9th Amendment in the Constitution is about, rights that weren't specifically addressed by the Constitution.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Yes we do. Then again you think "some discrimination" is OK as long as you agree with it.

    Marriage for 2 men or women is not a right just like polygamy etc.

    And not allowing SSM isn't discriminatory how?

    I actually don't see any real problem with polygamy either though I know that's not the norm.

    We would have to know a little something about you in order to say how anyone's marriage "forces" anything on you.

    Other people's marriages don't force anything on me, it's none of my business. But to answer your question I have a job and I'm a student.

    And the second part of my post did not answer the question?
