Reply to "Woman sues church over gay marriage"

Reference:
I suspect the reasons you don't see the difference between a person's race, their gender and their sexual orientation is because you just don't want to.  The differences in definition really aren't all that hard to grasp.  Legally, I question whether or not sexual preference is a substantial enough criteria upon which to base legal justifications and modifications - especially to the Constitution of the United States.  Personally, I'm not sure it's all that serious an issue.  And CERTAINLY ... CERTAINLY not nearly as substantial as the issue of race.

Late post. I know, but I was just perusing through the threads and I thought I would respond. Sometimes I post and there is a dialogue going on that I don’t finish because I come and go to the forum and sometimes I lose track. Anyhoo, yes, I am very aware the difference between an individual’s race and their sexual orientation. Where you and I differ is I do not believe in discriminating nor limiting an individual’s full constitutional rights based on an arbitrary and capricious prejudice. You have still failed to explain in plain English as to why a person should be prohibited from marrying someone of the same gender. Please state a definitive legal reason why it should not be permitted.

Again, I have yet to hear a compelling argument as to why they should be denied this right. It’s not ok to deny the right to marry someone of a different race but it is ok to deny them the right to marry if they are the same gender. Correct? Your logic: Getting married? Are you of a different race or ethnicity than your partner? No problem. Are you of a different gender than your partner? Great! Get married. Are you of the same gender as your partner? Huh? Oh helllll nooooo! I don’t think so. No legal marriage for you! Why not? Well, because….because you shouldn’t be allowed to because I don't like it. There ya have it….
