    I don't know where there's an uproar about it, I'm simply stating it's not a marriage. Pick a different word or set of words. Wanna call it "gay marriage"? Ok by me. Wanna call it "supercool same sex mofo's" that's swell too.
    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.

    Seriously. When it's just called "marriage," you'll be fine. Your boss will still be an asshole, your teenage daughter will think you're ruining her life, beer will be sudsy and cold, and you'll have to mow your lawn every damn week. Everything will be the same, because at the end of the day nobody will be able to gay marry at you.

    Certainly you see the point that a new pool of clients is over and above the general rise or fall of population.

    We've all got problems.
    Well fecal art is art by some. Just like scratching a chalkboard with fingernails may be called "music". I just happen to be one of those people who doesn't think fecal art is real art, fingernails on chalkboards is not really music, and that a homosexual union shouldn't be called a "marriage". English has an abundance of words more so than most languages - you'd think we could give everyone their own term and positive definition.

    All things do not have personal investment in whether or not it affects me. Whether or not I'll be fine or not is irrelevant.

    Why should the word "up" be reserved for things that are elevated?

    Maybe I forgot to mention that your friends and family, and extended family and friends of friends, will be fine too. Nobody will be able to gay marry at them either.
