And restricting gay marriage is not a 'government right'.

Get an non religous ceremony and get married.. i mean if your gay or straight or as we're on ATS alien and you wanna get hitched then get hitched, its totally up to you and no one else.. these constant argument about if its right or wrong or leagal are just stupid...
Black and white of it... if you love someone marry them... if people dont accept it then thats there problem...

valid point; how often do you here about adultery ni marriage these days? and yet they claim to be protecting the Sanctity of marriage lol

I personally do not agree with the theory that homosexuality is mostly genetic or people are born that way. I think it may be true for some but not the majority of homosexuals.
I think it is more commonly a personal preference, personal choice that life experiences and environment in which they grew up .
People learn these behaviors by experience and experimentation. They mimic what they see when they are young. Then for what ever their reason they choose their preferences.

Marriage isn't a human right full stop. It's just two people joining their lives together and loving eachother.
I have tried so very hard to compromise with gay marriage advocates. I can offer them every single "legal" benefit of marriage, including the option to adopt children or the option to use technology to impregnate a female/female couple. There is only one area where I ask these gay marriage advocates to compromise. I ask them to not call what they want marriage. I am content with them using any form of classification they wish, excluding marriage, to describe their union.
