More to the point, doesn't the different terminology invoke a clear difference between the two relationships making the use of one very offensive to the other? Perhaps homosexuals should have just accepted "Civil Unions" if marriage between two homosexual people would forever be seen as not real marriage through terminology.
    Why wouldn't you introduce Sally and her lovely wife Danielle?

    This is what I would like to see. Then individuals churches that support gay marriage would be able to let gay people marry if they felt inclined. We need to take the religious part out of the contract between the two people who want to unite.

    I don't think it's quite as romantic to say, "will you be legally bound to me?" though.

    Yes, because two consenting adults is the same as marrying someone under age.

    This is why some conservatives are NEVER taken seriously when they resort to idiotic slippery slope techniques that have been debunked for ages.

    You obviously have never seen lipstick lesbians before then. There are quite a mnay of them out there, but then most homophobes only go off of stereotypes.

    I know many gay couples where you could not make that distinction.

    Genius level IQ is not normal either, but it is a good thing. Not being "normal" is not a bad thing.
