    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    2.) If you make them legally equal than theres absolutley no logical reason to call them by another name, thats dumb and discrimination.
    Then we should call homosexuality and heterosexuality just sexuality, right?

    Those benefits are designed for couples, and LGBT couples are being denied those benefits simply by the fact who they choose to couple with. What is your reasoning to deny LGBT people those benefits?

    Not the scope of the question since we are talking about couples, not singles. Try to stay on point.

    uhmmmm we do because it IS their sexuality LMAO

    homo and hetro describe the SEXUALITY

    so if you are trying to make a parallel, in this case, it would be MARRIAGE, same sex MARRIAGE or hetero MARRIAGE or homosexual MARRIAGE or gay MARRIAGE

    Sure she could. But that does not mean that she could marry the one that she loves and loves her. Heterosexual marriage however does allow one to marry the one that they love. See that is the difference. That is where it is unequal. You get to marry the one you love. She does not get to marry the one she loves.

    Both of which can be challenged in a court of law. Marriage adds an extra protection to keep those from being overturned.

    My question to those like me who oppose ssm, why would you also oppose civil unions?
