    Navy...you were against civil unions as well, until gay marriage became a threatening reality to you, NOW all of a sudden you are in favor of civil unions? The reality is, those who claim that "marriage" is "sacred" are oftentimes those who do more damage to "marriage" than anyone else. Marriage is about love and respect, it is not about politics and hate. This is something that the vast majority of America is coming to understand. You are losing the battle, the numbers are changing every day.

    Civil unions are not recognized on a federal level. Only marriages are.

    The first civil unions in the United States were offered by the state of Vermont in 2000. The federal government does not recognize these unions, and under the U.S. Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 (DOMA), other U.S. states are not obligated to recognize them.
    Wiki ~ Civil Unions

    So even if a state gives full legal benefits to a civil union for SSM it is not recognized on a federal level.

    Again, seperate but equal is not equal.

    I know same sex couples who have been together for a hell of a lot longer than 10 years.

    If you really supported civil unions for same sex couples then you would be shooting to get the government out of marriage entirely and leaving "holy matrimony" for the churches.

    You should read up on the history of the word before you make the claim that homosexuals changed the meaning of "gay"...

    It looks like the attempt to rename gay marriage to civil union has failed.

    NH House Kills Gay Marriage Repeal Bill - ABC News
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Gay marriages are not recognized on the federal level regardless if you call them gay marriage, or closet gay marriage supporter term like civil union or domestic partnership.

    I honestly have no interest in defiling anything, but sometimes comments like this make we want to go piss in a Church or something.

    Love is what's special. Bigotry deserves to be defiled.

    Actually, there is really just an absence of federal law. But don't worry, it really is only a matter of time before such marriages are recognized nationally. Is just sad to see the bigotry of some.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
