    uhm already done, marriage is a type of civil contract. Its specific for its purpose like the majority of other contracts.

    Then why be up tight? No subsidies, no tax privileges.... Why call it marriage at all? Just to rial the Christians and other traditionalists? That sounds low to me.

    1.) whos uptight? people just want their equal rights granted by marriage.
    2.) this has very little to do with equality
    3.) because thats what it factually is
    4.) I am a christian and it doesnt rial me up at all because im not a moron. I understand the fact that legal marriage has nothgin to do with religious marriage.
    5.) see 4# nothing low about it

    Christians nor religion in general own the term marriage. They don't get it just because they want it. They have no copyright of the term marriage. They have no legal claim to it. It has been used much more for legal partnerships than it has religious ones, despite common belief.

    -You sounded so. If not that's fine.
    -What rights?
    -Well, factually the word meant something else. It entailed a factual difference between man an woman.
    -Then you were brought up and call yourself Christian, while demanding Unchristian things. That is fine by me, but your being a Christian is no argument except in canonical law.
    -I did not expect you to see it that way.

    1.) nope just support people wanting equal rights
    2.) marriage is a right and when one enters into a marriage contract about 1200 federal rights/protections are granted alone
    3.) no, thats only opinion that has no barring on the legal contract
    4.) who says its unchristian? regardless of that why on earth would i want my morals forced on others in america which is a free country that would be stupid. And i didnt bring me up being christian as an argument i brought it up to show how meaningless your failed statement was about "rile up Christians"
    5.) of course not i have a habit of seeing facts and ignoring fantasy

    Of course they don't own the meaning. But the word had a meaning, when the original laws were written. If the meaning is changed, the laws need to be adapted. That is fine.

    As it is probably out dated to have taxes and subsidies granted to married couples in any event, maybe we should just have everyone stand on his own. One person, one tax, one social security etc.

    I just wanted to mention here that the definition of marriage is now up for grabs at ebay.

    Better get your stealth bidding programs up to snuff, because this one is going down to the wire.

    Thing is that equal rights require equal entities. Boys and girls are different.
    Why is marriage a right? I really do not see any reason for that.
    1.200 rights etc? They all cost something. So we have to cut them all. Then I don't really care. But why should I pay for someones sexual dreams?
    Christian beliefs are relatively well defined. But maybe you can demonstrate some esoteric christian church that likes gay marriage? I would honestly like to read the link.
    Really?
