    Create a piece of paper on your computer that says "marriage" on it. Print it out and hang it on the wall so you can feel good.
    That thing. It's not much, but the fact stands that marriage has become more than just a religious institution, as proven by the fact that nonreligious people do it all the time.

    If instead you were given the option of registering a civil union at the local courthouse, so that your union ("marriage") gained legal stature, would that suffice?

    Is it the status of the term "married" or the legal stature for your relationship that is important to you?

    (honest questions, btw)

    Yes. Consenting adults should be allowed to do as they please until some demonstrable harm to others is proven.

    Well I'm personally a fan of doing things the traditional way, so being married by that term would be preferable. Not that it matters very much.

    So if marriage were deemed a religious exercise, but civil unions could be registered at the courthouse...is that an acceptable arrangement for you?

    The state of being gay should be defined like it truely is...

    If everyone on the planet suddenly became gay then humans would be extinct in about 100 yrs.

    This alone is enough to show that being gay is a physical/mental defect and not to be promoted in the courts or schools but studied to better understand this flaw in human nature for the reproductively challenged.

    Are you suggesting that gay people are infertile?

    I could've sworn gay women are still women... and something about how gay men still ejaculate?

    People use this "If everyone was gay then humans would be extinct" BS arguement as if gay couples don't already have children.

    Need I point out Octomom for the whole "Gays can't reproduce" arguement? She isnt gay but if she can have freaking octuplets I'm pretty sure the woman down the road that looks like a military drill instructor can pop one out.
