Everybody is subject to the same law there. It does not discriminate.
Neither does marriage, when one understands the connotation of what a marriage is.
Let's say I have an apple pie. You come along and say, "I'd like to have a piece of that apple pie, but I want blueberries and not apples in mine". I tell you "Sounds like what you want is a piece of blueberry pie. It's over there.' You say "I don't want that pie. I want apple pie, but with blueberries instead of apples."
Doesn't make a whole lot of sense, does it?
But that's what the argument of same-sex "marriage" (versus civil union) is all about. Wanting to change the definition of something very specific to also include something that it is not.
