I would disagree. Marriage is not a right, it's a privilege, and no one is entitled to it. In fact, why are people entitled to these benefits just because they get married? Why can't a single person enjoy some of these benefits and entitlements as well?
Show me where the Constitution guarantees the "right of marriage."
I personally believe that the government shouldn't even be involved in the marriage business. Either you get married in a church or you don't get married at all. What about atheists? You ask. Why do atheists care about marriage in the first place?
Yeah, I remember, your "evidence" wasn't evidence at all. The only people it convinced were those who already believed that people are born gay. Not to mention those people who are dumb enough to believe that the internet is a reliable source of information.
But it shoots down your silly notion that this is somehow tied with racism.
We are also a government of, by and for the people. Our government is a servant to the will of the people, not the other way around.
Liberties and freedoms are definitely NOT
condusive to a cohesive and enduring marriage. I guess he hasn't heard about that "ball and chain" clause you guys are always complaining about.
