One of the common arugements I've seen from social conservatives is that the creation of a civil union should answer the questions regarding gay marriage.
Typically, the general idea is this:
- The civil union will contain the same benefits as a heterosexual marriage
- The term 'marriage' will only be recognized as between one man and one woman
So, dear reader, my question to you is: Are civil unions an acceptable compromise with regards to the issue of Same-Sex marriage?
I'll try to have the answers as applicable as possible.
