Heterosexuals and Homosexuals are already protected under current laws. You can't be discriminated against based on race, color, gender, religion, ethnicity, national origin and age. Which one of those do Homosexuals NOT fall under? Marital Status is not listed because it never is an issue for ANYONE. Homosexuals are not discriminated against just because they can't get married. They have the same right to marry as everyone else. They just don't accept the man & woman definition of marriage. That doesn't mean that they don't have the right to marry. Marriage is not limited to anyone. They just don't want the marriage that is available to them. When the definition of marriage changes, it opens the flood gates of any combination of unions to be legitimately lobbied for: multiple wives, multiple husbands, marriage to animals, etc. Even NAMBLA would have a LEGAL, although morally repugnant, precedence to adult-child marriage. Discrimination in marriage in that instance cannot be partial to anyone or form if you follow the logical repercussions of that argument. But that is an issue that those fighting against traditional marriage want to just ignore and not address.
