The issue of gay marriage is that gay people should be protected, federally or otherwise, to marry people of their gender.
That's no different than interracial marriage, which is not a civil liberties argument (since black people could marry other black people), but a civil rights argument.
As I said, you made an ignorant assumption and I informed you that you were full of it. If you wish to prove something then, by all means, get to work. Start searching.
