I am disappointed that the editorial board employed elementary school logic in their gay marriage reasoning. In elementary school if you say you love something, the common response is "Then why don't you marry it?" My love for pizza, friends, family, etc. doesn't require marriage. Marriage is a contract with those getting married, God, and any future children. God has never endorsed changes to marriage. Future children are not physically possible with gay relationships, so the need for marriage is unnecessary. No one is questioning their ability to love whoever they desire to love. That argument has nothing to do with marriage.
Discrimination is also not a part of the argument. If they are being denied any right that I (a married person) have, then that should be changed and I would fight for those rights to be restored. With that said, I don't have the right to change the definition of marriage, and neither do they. That decision should be left to He who created marriage.
