i admire your understanding the need for consistency. still, you do acknowledge that the government can and should discriminate in handling out marriage licenses, if only on the basis of age in the fact that children at some age are too young to be married.
it seems to me that you have stilled allowed the camel of government discrimination in handing out marriage licenses to get his nose under the tent.
that means the extent of government discrimination is a legitimate point of discussion.
i am copying this and moving it to the top so i do not have to keep searching for it.
