    Stupid question but wouldn't this whole issue be alot simpler if Gays got the right to marry under 'civil unions' with laws introduced to give them equal rights as those married e.g. tax breaks, inheritance etc.

    Its basically marriage but shuts up the traditionalists.

    No one on the pro-gay marriage side is saying YOU have to have a gay marriage or that you don't have a right to your own personal views.
    The same cannot be said for the anti-gay marriage crowd.
    Exactly. If you don't agree with gay marriage, then don't marry a gay. It's that simple.

    There are a few exceptions just as there are in the Jewish community; but the VAST majority is indeed composed of Liberal Democrats and support a Liberal agenda.

    Suggesting they aren't is about as hysterical as suggesting that marriage is a Constitutional right.

    See, everyone is happy.
    I think the main issue is that Gays who are living together and are 'married' are not protected the same way as hetro's married are.

    It would end a lot of the fight and to be honest I'd be quite happy with that. However, there would be people who would continue to argue that it still doesn't make it "equal".

    I wouldn't. Separate but equal is never either.

    I would be fine with government getting out of the marriage field altogether and civil unions for everyone.

    I am hardly surprise to see you purposely misquote the argument; it is about the further breakdown of families. But alas, why should you give a crap about family or family values and the importance for them to have a MOM and a DAD right?
