Someone here mentioned this case recently, though I don't remember in what context.

Interestingly enough, a bit of contridiction occured recently with the newest state constitutional amendment:

So, they are human enough for legal protection, as a group, from criminal acts, but not human enough for the legal (as opposed to religious recognition) right to marriage?

The common response to the issue of how the legal Right to marriage should be denied simply because of the genders of those getting married is usually what is in this story:

"The state already had a law against same-sex marriages, but proponents said the amendment was needed to prevent judges from opening the door to civil unions, which offer gay couples the legal benefits of marriage but not the title."

That's usually the extent of the excuse. No real reason why the law (as opposed to religious beliefs) can not recognize a same-sex marriage. Legally, there is no positive or negative to those who are not involved in the marriage. Even benefits to the married couple do not harm, in any way, anyone else. The positives/negatives are no different to John Q Public whether the pair of strangers getting married are of the same-gender or different genders.

And no one, not the Eagles Forum, not the politicians, not even the President of the US, has offered up one single argument to justify making the act, under the law, of same-gender marriages illegal. Of course, the same could be said of more-than-two-spouses marriages.

Frankly, by creating such an amendment, it smacks as much of a Hate Crime against a group of humans as violent assault does.
