You do have every right as everyone else. If you want to get married move to a state where you can. Problem solved and the tears dry up.
There are more important problems that need attention before any of the things you mentioned. It's called priorities.

Equal rights for all is not important?

Nope, because that is a lie. They have the same rights as everyone else.

If the Feds don't change inheritance law, or other contract enforcements, their marriage is nothing but a name. Get the government out of marriage, permission and benefits.

There are more important things to worry about. Worrying about things like this right now is selfish.

So they can pass assets to each other at death using the unlimited marital deduction?

I assume you are for the elimination of that law to make everyone even correct?

Many on here seem to worry about gay marriage alot since every time there is an opportunity they speak out against it.

Oh please.... What's more important. People getting back to work and keeping their homes or gays that want to marry? Is the economy more important or is getting money from a death more important?

I know the answer that most selfish people will give. The money GIVEN to them from a death is more important than prosperity in the country.
