Quote# 7624

What's does consent have to do with marriage? I think it's time proponents of same-sex marriage spell out exactly what they think marriage should be, and then defend it before the American people.

Does this person think that all marriages are (or even were) arranged? I'd say that consent is a fairly major detail. Without that, I think they have another name for it: Kidnapping.

Regarding the case for homosexual marriage, it has been made innumerable times, and it is quite simple: Let two people of the same sex be able to marry and have exactly the same legal rights in that relationship that heterosexual couples have in their marriages. As far as I'm concerned, it's not only a reasonable request, but a matter of proper civil rights for us heterosexuals. Why shouldn't gays be just as miserable as we are?
