"Banning" same sex marriage is more like saying we're not going to give a tax break and a host of other special government benefits (which, to be fair, are substantial) to people who possess guns.
no that is wrong
it is about BIG GOBERMENT sticking it's nose into peoples personal life
this is a civil rights issue
think the constitution calls it the pursuit of happiness
but getting married is a pursuit of misery
