    For people who are against Same Sex Marriage.

    Are you for Civil Unions with the same benefits as marriage, the only difference being the name of the institution?

    Yes, or no?

    Re: For people who are against Same Sex Marriage.

    I would say yes. I am pro-civil unions. I may not believe homosexual relationships can be properly defined as marriage, but I support their rights to have equal benefits and to live happily together as legally recognized partners.

    Re: For people who are against Same Sex Marriage.

    I think it should be called the exact same thing for both. I think it should either be gov't recognized marriage for everybody, gov't recognized civil unions for everybody, or nothing.

    Didn't vote as I'm obviously not against same sex marriage. Just thought I'd give my two cents.

    No for two reasons

    1.) civil unions CURRENTLY are NOT has stong or equal to marriage law wise. Unions have been defeated in the death/sickness when dealing with wills, property, money, life care needs etc.

    2.) If you make them legally equal than theres absolutley no logical reason to call them by another name, thats dumb and discrimination.

    Re: For people who are against Same Sex Marriage.

    No. Because it is nothing more than a paper coated term for marriage. Its a way for closet gay marriage supporters in office to legalize gay marriage while appeasing suckers who fall for the little con job. If a call a pile of cow manure a t-bone steak will you want to eat it? No because of regardless of what I call it is still a pile a cow manure. Calling marriage a civil union, domestic partnership or some other politically correct term meant to appease those who say they are against gay marriage does not change the fact it is still a marriage. I used to be one of those suckers who fell for that if we just give them the same benefits as marriage but not call it marriage then it is not gay marriage.
    "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"
