What a nice fantasy world you libs dwell in.
Biden is a joke and total moron and yet smarter than Obama. Sarah kicked his clueless butt in the V.P debate but the leftist media went after Sarah.
Sarah kicked herself out of Alaska with good reason everybody hated her guts.

Stupid, gay people can marry someone of the opposite sex so it isn't a special right. To allow gay marriage is giving them a special right.

But a man can.
Why would a straight woman want to marry a women? Not important, if you really want to marry a woman there are a few states that will accommodate you, give it hell.

Neither can a woman (with analogous relations). So what is your point?

LOL! Straight people would also be able to marry someone of the same sex, so it wouldn't be a special right. Can't have it both ways.

Face it, there just isn't a good argument against gay marriage.

If it's separate, it's unequal.

The second section of the 14th Amendment explicitly lists rights for males, as opposed to females. It also lists rights for adults over twenty-one as opposed to children and for citizens as opposed to noncitizens.

Rose should learn to read; there are no gender equality rights in the Constitution.

Well, stupid, the equal protection clause applies to citizens. Non citizens aren't citizens. Duh.

Yes there is:
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
"Persons" includes men and women.

Article Three of the German Constitution says:
[Equality before the law]
(1) All persons shall be equal before the law.
(2) Men and women shall have equal rights. The state shall promote the actual implementation of equal rights for women and men and take steps to eliminate disadvantages that now exist.
(3) No person shall be favoured or disfavoured because of sex, parentage, race, language, homeland and origin, faith, or religious or political opinions. No person shall be disfavoured because of disability.
There's no similar gender equality right in the US Constitution. Vice President Biden voted to enact DOMA into law, when he was in the Senate. DOMA defines marriage as one man and one woman, that's federal law.

I'm sure it's written in German. And maybe the term translated "persons" doesn't include both men and women.

It includes men and women are equal, here's the original:

Artikel 3 [Gleichheit vor dem Gesetz]
(1) Alle Menschen sind vor dem Gesetz gleich.
(2) Mšnner und Frauen sind gleichberechtigt. 2Der Staat fŲrdert die tatsšchliche Durchsetzung der Gleichberechtigung von Frauen und Mšnnern und wirkt auf die Beseitigung bestehender Nachteile hin.
(3) Niemand darf wegen seines Geschlechtes, seiner Abstammung, seiner Rasse, seiner Sprache, seiner Heimat und Herkunft, seines Glaubens, seiner religiŲsen oder politischen Anschauungen benachteiligt oder bevorzugt werden. 2Niemand darf wegen seiner Behinderung benachteiligt werden.

Look at Canada's charter or the South African Constitution for other examples of gender equality. There is no gender equality right in the US Constitution.
