However there are many other groups who are equally as vocal and yet I notice a lot of that being ignored and the 'attack' is against "the" church... not "a" church, or other group.

Not that it's really important but marriage between ANY 2 people however is not a human right, neither is carrying a weapon, or trying to cross an international border (just a few examples of things I have recently been told are 'Human Rights")... it's just some food for thought, most people don't actually know what their rights are... human or civil. etc. Even I claim ignorance for the most part, the topic really fascinates me, and I'd like to learn more.
Freedom of marriage is a human right. It's in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (which the U.S. voted in favor of). The Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 16.
