Lets say you and your opposit sex sweetheart hold a wedding at the bigest church in the US and the Pope himself conducts the ceremony.

BUT

You neglect to get a marriage licence/cerificate at city hall.

Are you married?

In the US the answer is

NO.

Isn't it awful to have to come to terms with images of your own self hidden down deep and projected outward and judged, that you just cannot reconcile. Don't fry your brain trying.

For all those who show polls saying people don't want SSM - I say ... TOO BAD

In the USA we don't decide the Definition of EQUAL RIGHTS based off of polls. Equal Rights is defined as EQUAL RIGHTS TO ALL PERSONS.

Thus, The "Definition" of Marriage in the USA should have ALWAYS been - "a union between 2 people who love each other."

Now, if any who are AGAINST SSM are confused as to why polls can't decide who "we" discriminate against, I suggest YOU ALL look up the Supreme Court Case: Loving v. Virginia

Loving v. Virginia was a case brought when the State of VA decided whites should only marry whites.

Supreme Court Ruled: "Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival"

So, those who are against SSM - my advice to you is --- don't marry a person of your same gender

Separate is never equal. If you read the studies Thurgood Marshall presented in Brown v Board of Ed Topeka Kansas, it is as clear as day. If you trying to maintain a distance or division in citizenship rights....it's not because you are interested in inclusion or equality. It's because you are interested in maintaining a right for yourself that you are denying others. At a holiday dinner if you get the same food as the adults but have to sit at the children's table because you are not considered the same as the other adults....you are not equal. You may state that it's not an insult to sit with the children because you love the children but it is not the same as being welcome at the adult's table. Citizen's are citizens...we don't need modifiers.

A better Supreme Court Decision that seems to fully support the notion of SSM is Loving v. Virginia.

"Citizen's are citizens..­.we don't need modifiers". So how do you explain a parade in NYC that's not for ALL citizens, just those whose only observable different charcteristic is that they share a preference in their sexual activity? Aren't they _____ (modifier) -citizens?

All are invited to Pride parades. I have many heterosexual friends who attend to show their support, and to have a great time.

" Another saw his partner and children's health insurance canceled by a skeptical auditor."

In all liklihood the auditor was not skpetical at all, it was probably his job ton deny coverage for even the flimsiest of excuses.

Let them marry. As a NJ resident I see no reason to deny this. It has no detrimental effect on anyone. People who claim societies downfall are the same people who said the same thing if blacks could marry whites, or the women could vote. If you dont like it, dont watch.

You would get the same rights under a Civil Union. Marriage is and always will be One Man One Woman.

Your assertion is demonstrably false.  The states ofConnecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont and the District of Columbia all explicitly grant marriages to same-sex couples.

Excellent, here's hoping gays and lesbians across the country will sue at will for their rights, it won't be too long until the Supreme Court rules in on all of this. That will get the ball rolling on even more wrongs to right.
