I am a law school graduate and am frankly puzzled over the discrimination aimed at same sex marriages, but such proscription is clearly unconstitutional.
Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender; and the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution guarantees equal protection of laws to all people.
If I wanted to marry a man–no problem. There are a variety of ceremonies to choose from and society would give its blessing. If I wanted to marry a woman, however, all doors would be slammed in our faces. Why? Because we are both women. Discrimination on the basis of gender? You bet.
To make an unconstitutional issue more vile, there are dictators in the form of state governors and state legislators who veto measures that the people voted in on properly placed measures on ballots, thus subverting the election process. Government of the people, by the people, for the people?
