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.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
