|it's not just about same-sex marriage
Gay marriage issues are as much about same sex union as the napster case was about music*.
It's about states rights. It's about the right of a local (perhaps minority in general, but not locally) people to govern themselves w/o dealing with the blanket policies of the "norm" - whatever that may be. I support gay marriage because I'm tired of the federal gov't coming in and destroying california industries like the biotech one because of their blanket bans created from legislators pandering to the bible belt. It's about state's rights.
*It wasn't about music, it was about rights-to-distribution.
