Why do you believe anyone would have a right to redefine marriage when it's a matter of natural law that goes back to the beginning of the human race? If the government decided to make a law saying that gravity no longer exists would that action taken by the government make it the truth? The survival of the human race depends on marriage as it's been defined by God which is revealed by the design of our bodies. In short, God made us male and female for a reason.
