6. There's no rational basis for opposition to it IMHO

The only basis that anybody EVER puts forward about why same-sex marriage should be illegal/not allowed is always rooted in religious belief but since we are (theoretically) NOT a theocracy and people in our country are free to practice whatever religion they want (or none at all), religious beliefs are (theoretically) not supposed to form the basis of our public policies. I have yet to hear a sincere, rational reasons for why it would in our country's best interests to deny same-sex couples the right to marry, mostly because I suspect that there are none.
