Normally I would say this is a state issue but since there are so many interstate companies it is probably a federal issue. I don't believe this is about rights and privileges. Every citizen should have the same rights and responsibilities within their country. Two people of the same-sex should have the same rights as a union between two people of opposite sex. This, however does not define two people of the same-sex in a union having a marriage. Marriage is between a man and a woman. I disagree with the redefining of the sacred word.
