    Dammit, you guys beat me to it.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Often because they are the only organizations that are within their area and they cannot move elsewhere.

    As if you have a "right" to certain private businesses existing.

    I never said I had such a right. That is why I seek same sex marriage.

    But you do, because you support state intervention into marriage.

    The state has already intervened into marriage. And since it is not going to get out, it needs to play fair.

    Fair is of course subjective. And you do not want fair, you want the word marriage.

    Well, then that's just tuff. I'm all for the state giving marriage, but private organisations should remain free to decline if they want. It's not like gays are the only people being discriminated against by these churches. Most Lutheran churches have legally-enforceable bi-laws specifically barring women from holding positions of authority. I don't like that, so I don't attend. No problem.

    So? It's not like I'll have to remarry my X if gays can marry. We can give gays 'marriage' and I'll still be on the other side of the country from that bitch in the morning. No problems.

    The word is semantics. It is what it represents that matters.

    It seems the people who really undermine marriage are those who are more worried about language and their ability to exclude than the integrity of the actual union.
