    Re: Civil Unions

    Regardless of what name they want to use, if the purpose is to extend the benefits enjoyed by a normal union (marriage) to those who want benefits based upon a union founded in unatural acts, then I am definitly against it. I am not against homosexual unions that simply recognise two peoples commitment to each other, I am only against the extension of marriage benefits.

    I oppose gay marriage regardless of what term you use to call it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Order does not equal peace and chaos does not equal violence. You can have chaos without any violence..don't believe me? Have a couple of kids. And you can have fighting even with order. A simple difference of opinion in an orderly way shows this.

    So what about a heterosexual couples who enjoy bondage, or female-into-male strap-on play?
    What about heterosexual couples who are a-sexual?

    Should they be denied marriage because their sexual inclinations are "unnatural"?? No? Just the gays? That's discrimination.

    Re: Civil Unions

    Honestly, so long as you call it a Civil Union, and the benefits are only those that are directly related to THE GOVERNMENT, I have no problem with it. Taxes, inheritance, etc.... on the GOVERNMENT side. So long as it would not require non-governmental entities (employers, etc...) to accept it as the equivelant of a marriage, that's fine with me. The moment they start trying to force private (non-governmental) entities to act as if it's a marriage, then I have issues with it.

    What parts specifically of gay marriage do you oppose?

    Nature shows that homosexuality is completely natural. Over 1200 species of animals (including humans) have shown homosexual behaviors.

    Not so long as the Marriage License exists. The marriage license is government issued and recognized contract, the individual has right to contract. So long as it exists, same sex couples should have their free exercise to the right of contract recognized.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Re: Civil Unions

    dammit i worded this thread poorly. The real question i am curious about is whether or not people care if the government stops acknowledging the term marriage and instead refers to it only as a Union.

    Disagreements can be organized. That's why they're orderly.

    The problem here is people are mandated to accept something for what it's not. It's like calling a square a circle.
