and technically it's a form of discrimination, and is against the constitution anyway.. so if someone really pressed it, it could get over turned (if ruled illegal) i mean... becuase the first ammendment CLEARLY states: "congress shall make no law respecting an estabolishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" so to me that means they cannot ban gay marriage becuase that's all people who are against it have is "my god says it is wrong" YET they IMO should not be able to force a church to have a gay wedding there or a minister to precide over the wedding if he/she doesn't want to.
