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….
