No. Separate but equal is NEVER an acceptable compromise. Its funny how the people who are the most "supportive" of civil unions are the same ones that 5 years ago were completely against them. Now that gay marriage is an inevitable reality, all of a sudden they are all in favor of civil unions. Well...you know what. We don't want your table scraps. You can take your civil unions and shove them up your ass. Gay marriage will soon be legal across the land and America will finally be closer to its promise of "Freedom and justice for all".
