Why Gay Marriage is Not a Right

Alec Rawls at Flopping Aces lays out a well reasoned and thought provoking piece on exactly why Gay Marriage is not a right, then goes on to discuss the abortion issue as well from a Constitutional and legal perspective.

"Homosexuals have a right to be tolerated, but social recognition of relationships via the institution of marriage is not about tolerance. It is about approval, and nobody has a right to approval.
