The term civil union should replace the term marriage for legal purposes
Both terms, civil union (for gay couples)and marriage (for straight), should be used
The term marriage should be use equally for gay and straight couples
Gay couples should not be able to have the rights of marriage at all.
Marriage always has and always will ONLY ever "belong" to or be "the property of" (whatever that's supposed to mean) humans.
Humans expressed their union through religion, but that doesn't mean religion owned it unless someone was marrying the religion instead of another person.
Humans expressed their marriage through codified laws, but that doesn't mean any government owned marriage unless someone was marrying the State instead of another person.
What do you folks smoke when you come with this bull****?
Marriage is not a thing to be owned by various political or governmental entities.
Marriage is an activity, a behavior, a way of life, so what you are referring to are trends in how humans have and do practice being married.
Government shouldn't be involved in it period. Then 'the people' can call it whatever the **** they feel like calling it on any given day or time.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Now, regarding my statement, IN CONTEXT, that people should be able and allowed to marry whomever they want (do I really need to spell out inbreeding and all of that for you) and that there is not a logical or sound argument that can be made to the contrary... make one that is and stop wasting my time.
