I resent the continuing practice of this and other media outlets of presenting the gay marriage debate as an "equal rights" issue. It is not! Whatever arguments that may be made for gay marriage, "equal rights" is not one of them.
A gay person has exactly the same marriage rights as a straight person. Specifically. a gay person is free to marry any mentally competent, of age, unmarried person of the opposite sex who will have them. What gay people are asking for are additional marriage rights, not equal rights.
