Why isn't Same-Sex Marriage legal?
I truly want to know why it is not legal in all 50 states. This is an issue of equality, so I want to know the ETHICAL arguments of why this is not legal yet...no sexist, racial, biased, homophobic, or ignorant arguments or social conventions please. Legitimate arguments wanted.
Additional Details
To clarify, I am not looking for a history lesson. I just want to know what is going on in Congress/Senete/Supreme Court that is convincing SO MANY representatives to vote against SS marriage?

It's not legal because in most states laws haven't been passed making it legal. It's that simple, not a matter of ethics.

The US was founded by mostly Christians. Now, they were not all Christians, and they weren't all believers in something, anything. A fair number of the Founding Fathers, for instance, were actually freethinkers (what we'd call agnostics or atheists today) who went along with predominately Christian culture of the time. Christianity (and the other two Abrahamic religions, Judaicism and Islam) has some writings against same sex activities. Mostly, this is interpreted to mean "homosexuals are evil", while some will interpret it as "homosexual activity is evil", meaning that it's OK to be homosexual as long as a person doesn't act on his urges. In such a culture, same-sex marriage is frowned upon. Interestingly, until last century, some states and territories allowed polygynous marriage...not polygamous, which would mean several husbands and wives in a marriage, but polygynous, which is one husband with several wives. The women usually refer to each other as cowives or sister wives, and generally don't have sex with each other.

I'm not saying that this is a GOOD reason to ban same sex marriage. In fact, I'm all for allowing SS marriage. I'm just saying, this is the historical reason why.

Edit: Oh, you wanted to know why it's not legal NOW? It's because many people still won't accept it. If their legislator votes for SSM, s/he'll get a lot of letters from angry constituents, informing him/her that they'll never vote for him/her again, ever. These constituents generally have religious reasons why they don't like SSM. Some places are more liberal, some are more conservative. I think that society is gradually changing to be more accepting of SSM and homosexuality in general, I know that attitudes have changed greatly in my lifetime.
