    Maryland Marriage Equality: House Of Delegates Passes Bill In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage
    Thanks for proving my point --- "Same sex marriage" not "marriage". Sounds fine by me.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    As irrelevant as the impact of gay marriage on your life?

    Apparently you didn't read where I previously stated I have no problem with gay marriage, just what language is used to define it.

    I'll bet there were still a bunch of hangers-on calling marriages between races "interracial marriages" for a while. But even racists probably concluded it was too much of a mouthful.

    Sorry, I should have said "As irrelevant to your life as the use of the word "marriage" for two gay people's marriage?"

    Whew.

    That's not the argument I was making, you are claiming that marriage should be only for a one man and one woman relationship, and I am asking why. And since marriage is a purely human construction, and is malleable, why can't a 2 woman, or 2 men enter into a marriage?


    Also there are already SSM, happening in every state, and no one can stop it. SSM exists, so in essence your definition is wrong. The only thing we are fighting for is the legal recognition of those marriages, not for the permission to enter into a marriage in the first place.

    You call it gay marriage.... if you REALLY thought it was "marriage" you wouldn't need to say "gay" before it... clearly you have issues with it as well.

    Oh and clearly... CBS is one of those "hanger ons" you were mentioning.
