    I don't really care, but at the marriage ceremony I wonder if they are going to say "person A, do you take person B to be your lawfully wedded person B?"

    People do realize this has nothing to do with the ceremony, right?

    That was a joke, but I still wonder why they can't both be wives or husbands. Why the person A/person B (or whatever it is)?

    That would be another reasonable way to do it.

    I think it has something to do with them imagining that, but not them seeing that.

    Wait, really? My god-father was married in California after being with his partner for many years, and at their ceremony and in social situations they refer to each other as husband. I've observed, but never thought it remarkable, the same in many, many, other examples. Is this not the norm in your view? My point would be let the words stay but make them interchangeable like Husband-Husband or Groom-Groom. Or if people want their own designation you could opt for that too I suppose. But I don't see the need to just abolish the titles on the certificates altogether, it means a lot to many straight and gay couples and it seems to be an example of political correctness run amok unless I'm missing something big here.

There's not much more to say on this, I've done the research since I was lucky enough to not be around during the 1970's, I get to read about it (no offense to those of you that were). Either way the information is there. Did you look at those sources I posted?
    1.) yes just making sure you understand what you are posting because it definitely seemed like you thought you were posting a fact or something meaningful and logical. It was an opinion and nothing more.

    2.) see the bolded stuff above? EXACTLY they were different movements very obviously distinguishable cause they had different goals. The KKK shares some goals with Christianity does that mean they are indistinguishable of course not.

    you sources provide ZERO logic or fact to make them indistinguishable like i already said.

    SOrry there just no logical or factual reason to have think the movements were the same movement and "indistinguishable"

    by all means though again, when you have anything logical or factual to support your claim by all mean please provide.
