    Well it is rather absurd to have chosen such a bad second best solution.

    Don't care, people should be able to marry as many people of any sex they want.

    Well, that's the thing. They should be allowed. They just shouldn't expect the state to recognise it. The Thai example shows that marriage can exist within a religious setting and not conflict with a legal definition of the word. They were married under Buddhist law. The state didn't have to recognize it. In the US what people are asking is for the state to recognize gay marriage, not that the churches recognize it.

    I'm fine with that as well. I also am of the strong opinion that the government should be out of the marriage business all together.

    Also it's not really a 'marriage' that would be recognized legally, it was a Buddhist ceremony.
    Exactly. There are people in polyamorous groups here in the US who would call themselves married even though they can't do it legally.

    Yea for all the people involved in this marriage; I hope they can make it work

    You can be, but it's hardly a realistic or pragmatic position to take. The government has never been disconnected from marriage. As a matter of fact, marriage is an institution of government and has been for a myriad of reasons including: population controls, conversion, power alliances, etc.

    But since we DO recognize marriage between two people here in the US - we're just saying the state can't discriminate by saying the spouses can't be of the same gender.

    If marriage had been strictly religious here in the US, that would be different. But it's a civil institution, buttressed by many benefits and responsibilities granted/allocated by the state. And the state shouldn't discriminate.

    If the government simply registered "civil unions", this whole "Gay marriage" issue would disappear.


    Let people call thier unions whatever they want, the government should have no say.,

    Marriage is just another name a civil union. If the government "regulated" civil unions tomorrow, we'd have other people trying to ban gays from getting them. Just look at the gay adoption issue. You have people arguing that legally married gay couples shouldn't be allowed to adopt children. If that doesn't give you a clue that the hatred is towards gays doing what straights are allowed to do and not a meagre definition of a word, I don't know what will.
