    It should also be views as a violation of the 1st amendment:


    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion"


    Being that marriage is a contract that takes the government to dissolve.

    Even if marriage and a civil union have the same exact rights they will still be unequal. However civil unions tend to have less rights then marriage does. And just to let you know marriage is older then Christianity and no the church does not own the word marriage.

    No one defines Holy Matriminy for me, but me. If means something to me, it lives. if it doesn't, it doesn't. And nothing someone else does changes it.

    As for number 2, it wouldn't be the first time what a law actually says had unexpected consequences. Take the words all men are created equal. That means something different to us today than it did when written.

    Basically you are pissed about gay marriage because of some pointless reason based on semantics. Hardly a reason to deny equality. This is the United States... we tend value equality here.
    And you got it my gay friend..You have the same right I do.......you want a special right.......It ain't gonna happen.

    Way to miss the point.

    The point is "Under God" is there now and has been upheld by he SCOTUS when people like you tried to get it thrown out........
    I never tried to get it thrown out. Do you ever tire of the dishonesty you use to approach debate? Or is it just something you've accepted as part of your debate style?

    Holy is a religious term and you are not allowed to subjugate others to your religion. One of the foundations of the Republic pal.

    We shall see my Liberal friend, we shall see...........

    Truth be told its very little about gay marriage....most gays could care less and just want the same benefits straights have..........I have no problem with that.........A few militant gays like you and a whole bunch of libs are pusshing the issue.......They want the gay lifestyle trated as a suitable alternative lifestyle...to teach our children this.................that will never happen.........The gay marriage thing is a sham...........
