Yes they did. They used the Supreme Court to force this redefinition down everyone's throat.

No. They got the supreme court to grant marriage licenses to them. They didn't redefine marriage.

Side: No.

Did monogamists have the right to redefine marriage so that it excluded polygamy?

Did the people who wanted an interracial marriage have a right to redefine marriage?

They both "used the Supreme Court to force this redefinition down everyone's throat." So if redefining marriage is wrong, then you must support polygamy and think interracial marriage should be against the law.

Here are some quotes from you:

People who resist gay marriage "are bigots who wish to force their bigotry on other people."

"I personally disagree with same sex marriage, but I choose to vote it to be legal anyway because same sex couples have the right to freedom of belief."

What made you change your mind and think they no longer have the right to freedom of belief?

Side: No.

Hello:

Nahhh... Gays wear pink and leave the lawmaking to the lawmakers.. You do the same thing, although you might not wear pink.. You DO know how laws are made here, doncha?? Ok, maybe not..

Side: No.

Nope. Only the males who have power over language can do that. Any female involvement in these issues is, by the admission of Bible, unacceptable.

Now, if you don't dare to redefine your rights over involvement in such matters, then we could say that you aren't too hypocritical about it.

Ah, now that I think of it, religious arguments are truly beautiful - I could prove anything that I want with them. Nothing secular beats such perfect sophistry.

Progressives are not aware of the reason for marriage license !

Around the 1920’s, there was no such thing as a marriage license. The states invented them as a way to dictate who could and could not get married for the purpose of making sure blacks, whites, Asians and Indians didn’t mix. That’s right. Marriage licenses were invented as a way to stop white people from marrying black people. Because they couldn’t get a license, interracial couples who would have been considered married before the marriage license was available, ceased to be married. They lost inheritance rights, medical rights and all other benefits of common law marriage. The issuers of marriage licenses were considered the gate keepers, charged with keeping the white race pure.

The racist and bigoted practice that is the marriage license is solely tied to Progressives!

Yet you look what you have today Progressives supporting a racist issue !

Truth and Reality escapes the Leftist when it comes to a marriage license !

Side: No.

In a society with Constitutionally protected civil rights including freedom, equality, and no mandate for any specific religion, yes, yes they have a right to marry, and/or to have the legal equivalent of a marriage even if it's called something else just as long as it is truly legally equivalent.
