Ok while writing my paper for my government class, and expounding on the virtues of the first amendment, I came to a conclusion.
Outlawing gay marriage is unconstitutional. It flies in the face of the establishment clause of the first amendment, which states that the US government cannot impose religion on Americans. By making a law which is based ONLY on one particular religion, they are imposing that religion's beliefs on the entire country.
By outlawing gay marriage, the government is establishing the beliefs of the Christians as law, and therefore establishing a national religion.
What do you think?
Denying people that are in a same-sex relationship the same rights and privileges as the rest of us is absolutely no different than when we were denying general rights to women or ethnic minorities. Having the audacity to be born is not a valid reason for discrimination. I have never heard a single argument against Gay Marriages that is in any way rational.
I dare someone to provide a legitimate reason why these people shouldn't be allowed to be happy - living their lives the way they were born.

It is in the US. Especially when the grounds for the dispute is the debated topic that defines marriage as a relationship between man and woman. That is a christian view. Most all other cultures embrace homosexuality. But never mind that b/c the preaching conservatives cry that this country was founded on Christianity.
