26. but marriage at the state level does limit rights
if your marriage is not recognized in all fifty states.

by keeping it a "states rights" issue, our politicians are tacitly agreeing to keep it a "state's right to discriminate" issue.

I'm just saying it's shameful that a political special interest group such as Focus On The Family or Concerned Women of America are so willing to disavow the reality of gay families and make things as difficult as possible for those families.

Isn't it odd, these same people claim to be "inclusive" because they accept it's okay to be gay as long as you stay legally single, don't have children, and don't flaunt it.
