Same Sex Marriage

I have advocated for same sex unions for some time. I use union, rather than marriage to get around those who consider marriage reserved to men and women. I figure that in another generation or two it will be a difference without distinction and union can be discarded.

No matter what most religions proclaim, homosexuality is quite normal, not only in humans, but animals and don’t ever think about all the odd behavior in the plant world.  Homosexuality is not a choice unless you are willing to grant such choice to all animals.

Justice Scalia arguments have always made sense to me, no matter what the topic. He has brought my thinking around to his more than once.

Yesterday, he cut to the chase with one sentence.

"When did it become unconstitutional to exclude homosexual couples from marriage?" conservative Justice Antonin Scalia demanded of Mr. Olson in one of several heated exchanges. In "1791? 1868, when the 14th Amendment was adopted?"

Indeed! No moral argument required. No need to bring up injustice. It is simple, states can not enact laws that are unconstitutional.
