“Neither this Constitution or the constitution of any state, nor state or federal law, shall be construed to require that marital status or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon unmarried couples or groups.” -proposed constitutional amendment banning marriage.

simple equation here, folks.
1. where does it say ANYTHING about marriage anywhere else in the constitution. I’ve looked for it. it’s not there now, and it doesn’t belong there.
2. Why a man and a woman? what’s so special about that? if you’re referring to so-called “judeo christian” values as the foundation of western democracy, get your fucking church outta my state. please.
3. I think we should ban taxi-drivers from entering contracts with each other.
don’t forget that a marriage is just a contract, and it’s an infringement upon civil rights to make someone a second class citizen by not allowing them to enter into a contract with someone that they wish to.
4. what does the wording of that passage even mean? reread it. it makes no sense.
5. Upon looking at all the states that have laws that prohibit honoring only the same sex marriage laws of other states, which was a kneejerk bill that a bunch of state legislatures passed after they realized that Hawaii and Vermont were going to stop denying the constitutional right to enter into a contract with whom you please, it makes me wonder who ever heard of the full faith and credit clause. Which, if you’re keeping score, is in the constitution – unlike the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman – and says that all states will honor all laws passed in other states.

So now they wanna go fucking with that. If only people’d loosen up a little. Just because we don’t want to be prohibited from marrying another man doesn’t mean that you HAVE to marry a man. so what’s the problem? isn’t it my constitutional right to associate and enter into a contract with whom I please? That’s what this breaks down to, and that’s the only lens you need to see how absurd all this flak about “traditional marriage” is.

now let’s talk about jobs and corporate profits…
