    Like What? What "every whim" is any gay asking you to bend for them? It would be more clear if you could come up with a single example.

    Again, I'm saying that if they want to married then they can be married. I don't support them making PC changes to things to do with marriage though. Clear yet?

    There are still people who don't believe in inter-faith, or interracial marriage, should we consider their feelings? There is no way for everyone to be treated equally by the law without upsetting some people.

    Exactly what is, "bending to their every whim." Serious question. Short, succinct and to the point . . . as should be the answer.

    What PC things have gays asked to do with marriage?

    If no one understands, perhaps it's the explanation that is lacking.

    But, you haven't even came up with a hypothetical situation that would have any effect on your marriage.

    Changing the title on a government form really has no effect on how you refer to your spouse. And they didn't even change the terms on the application, just added "spouse" and you get to check which ever you want.

    You see, now that is TRUE discrimination, so no. Of course some people are going to be upset by some things, and at the same time people can just leave well enough alone and get married and be happy.

    I get the feeling there are going to be some complaints and some conflicts coming along down the road.
