    Re: For people who are against Same Sex Marriage.

    I voted no. Reason being is that as someone already said...cow manure is still cow manure no matter what it is called. All things being equal a civil union is the same as marriage. Why change the name just to satisfy some persons misguided concept of what marriage is? It wasn't until near history that marriage even started being defined as between a man and a woman. And the reason for that definition is in response to homosexuals. No other reason.

    I agree, either that or a bland hatred for homosexuals. I was hoping to argue with some of them and stand up for gay rights in this thread

    I actually call it "none of my damned business". I think it would behoove many people if they took a similar stance.

    Re: For people who are against Same Sex Marriage.

    I'm in favor of civil unions for everyone. We should separate the legal and ceremonial (and often religious) aspects of marriage. That way gays get their civil rights, and churches aren't forced to marry anyone they aren't comfortable marrying.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Essentially getting rid of the marriage license. That's fair. My question though comes from the fact that there will be Church's who will marry same sex couples. And since marriage would be left to the religious institutions, those same sex couples could then claim legitimate marriage. Will everyone else start bitching because a Church decides that it will wed same sex couples?

    Why not. If they want to give homosexuals civil unions with all that stuff, go ahead. They can knock themselves out.
    It's not marriage, though. That's the important thing.

    That cant and wont happen and if there is such a way it could gay marriage has no impact on it. It could happen RIGHT NOW if it was possible but its not. Churches dont have to marry anybody they deem unfit and reject straight couples now. and they are protected under the Constitution. Gay marriage doesnt change that.
