The rights to pursue happiness? Our rights to religious freedom? Right not to be discriminated based on race, creed or color? These our the civil rights that our forefather’s granted unto us...based on denied practices which if in another country were you born would have been granted the right to do...which at the time the 14th Amendment was written and later critiqued to embody sex, age or sexual orientation. Marriage has never been included in these rights based on what I see.
Our rights I somewhat question these new aged agendas, solely based on the written doctrine that separates church from government policy, which and whereas marriage was created inside the church and sanction by the church...only later to be documented solely by the government for a means of recording legally sanctioned church marriages...in the effort to document social security claims.
Our rights, yes granted when in line with what is done in other established countries or within a civilized society in another place. If this not be the case? Then pedophiles, bestiality are things which some people believe our their right to do free of prosecution by law? Our rights or not? Question of practice or desire, immoral or acceptable is my arguments to you?
