    This is as ignorant as it is wrong.

    Marriage as contract law is the creation of the states, the sole purview of the states, and as such they have the authority to administer that law, the notion of the states ‘getting out of’ the very law they create is ridiculous.

    Marriage as religious ritual is the sole purview of private religious organizations, safeguarded from attack by the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment – government was never ‘in’ private religious marriage rituals to begin with.

    State contracts need to be distinguished by using the term civil union and marriage reserved for religion.

    They don't sell them to ANYONE....If you had actually read and understood PA laws, you'd know that's not a violation.[/QUOTE]

    Faggots want different-but-equal treatment, and they want the government to coerce others to that end.[/QUOTE]
    And here is an example of the ignorance, fear, bigotry, and hate common to most on the right, and why public accommodations laws are indeed necessary, proper, and Constitutional.

    The difference is between racial and cultural bigotry and discrimination.

    If someone is refused service because of their race that if protected by law as discrimination against a persons racial differences which are physical and definable.

    However if we are going to allow lawsuits because of cultural differences, like not serving ham & bacon or making a LGBT cake, we now head down a very slippery slope.

    Why shouldn't the "gun culture" be allowed to sue the media for discriminating because of the medias targeting the gun cultures right to bear arms?

    Simple answers.

    #1 - Short of a constitutional amendment, the 2nd clearly protects the inidividual's right to keep and bear arms.

    #2 - The gov't has absolutely no business in the marriage game.
