I have actually read the Constitution and the Federalist papers. I don’t remember marriage being discussed. Maybe they’re talking about the equal protection clause. If that is the case then that doesn’t make any sense either. All homosexuals of adult age are allowed to get married with very few exceptions. They cannot presently be married, and they have to marry someone of the opposite sex. We have the exact same privledges.
Absolutely. That is the answer to the arguement. I have to deal with this crap in my family (the in-laws). In the future I will simply respond with “But you do have equal protection under the law, no law is stating that gay men cannot marry a woman.

Never was, the major legal issues that exist with family relationships are designating whose job it is to pull your plug if you are left a vegetable, who is on your insurance plan, how your inheritance gets divided, and which kids deserve to be in your custody, but then again, being considered a biological parent, according to court cases, is no longer the great deal it used to be.
If worst comes to worse, I can see major churches no longer asking, in fact plenty asking for you to not get out a government marriage license, which is probably the way it should have been in the first place. The morality of government and the morality of God are wholly incompatible, I would always think twice when seeing how lax the morality of man’s laws are in comparison to the morality of God’s laws.
