    Let people call thier unions whatever they want, the government should have no say.,
    A myth. Conservatives turn out in droves to vote against same-sex civil unions. Numerous states banned civil unions in their constitutions. This "let's just compromise and call it something else" is just a smokescreen, attempting to appear reasonable mostly because they know the fight is already lost.

    The religious do not own the word marriage. They don't get to take it away from everyone else.

    Good luck with having no Social Security or virtually any retirement benefits, access to non-corrupt court systems, fair or reasonable tax policies (or even the pleasure of knowing that the government will actually receive your tax money), assurance that your family will receive any benefits from your spouses' employer, or after you spouse dies, any benefits whatsoever from anyone.

    Good luck in paradise!!

    Wouldn't this technically be polyandry?

    No idea. What's the term that covers 'marriage between multiple participants?'

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.

    I'm telling you the solution. just call em all civil unions, if the government stopped calling it marriage, that whole argument goes away. you have far fewer people screaming about gay adoption than you do gay marriage.

    Take the religious word out of the unions and there is little to fight over.


    plus, if you decide you are "against gay civil unions" there is no doubt you are calling for the oppression of peoples, not simply "protecting the sanctity, blah blah blah of marriage".

    Link.

    Numerous states banned civil unions in their constitutions.

    which ones?

    Link?



    This "let's just compromise and call it something else" is just a smokescreen, attempting to appear reasonable mostly because they know the fight is already lost.

    I hate this stupid comment.


    I support gay marriage. I always have, you can search my posts. I simply think that if you get the government out of the marriage business and have it's ONLY role is to register "civil unions" for census or whatever purposes, you take the wind out of the anti-gay marriage bigots.


    Is that clear enough for you or do you want to continue to infer things that are not true?


    The religious do not own the word marriage. They don't get to take it away from everyone else.

    How does what I propose do this? anybody is free to call thier whatever, a marriage.

    If we're going to proclaim that people have a fundamental right to have their "marriage" recognized by the state, there's really no way to stop it.

    Why do other people's relationships bother you when they have no bearing on you whatsoever?

    as long as opposite couples also got civil unions, it would probably be legal.
