Empleto, you would fit right into Communist China. You would execute pastors for refusing to perform same-sex "marriages"? That's really fucked up.

What's happened to Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and Kentucky? They used to have a conservative brain in their heads.

I'm soo excited to remove all "illegals" bc I can't wait to pay triple for food, a home, hotel rates, etc. Great idea!

Does anyone think about the "what if" trust me you may not like it.

Yes God married one man and one woman but MAN placed legal stipulation on marriage. No free passing of estates, no second parent adoption in most states, no joint tax benefits. That was MAN'S doing, not God's. God set the example for procreation and not everything else.

Biblical marriage is also for slaves, rape victims, concubines and multiple wives. Is that the tradition that you are protecting?

Civil unions don't have the same rights. That's what's wrong.

Mitwister: my point is there are some laws, government or natural, that should be enforced even if its against the choice a person would otherwise make.

Mitwister: he said treat people the way you would want to be treated and I am. I don't want anyone to have the right to same sex marriage including myself. I wouldn't use it if it were a right, but my point is I am treating others the way I want to be treated.

Civil unions already exist and allow the same tax and legal privileges as a marriage. What's wrong with the current set up of civil unions?

I'm extremely conservative, but when it comes to gay rights, I believe that it should be legalized. Who am I to say one person can't be with another? However, I feel the term "civil union" would be a better term than "marriage" because marriage was established for a man and a woman...

Icpshootz: there are over 1000 federal laws that reference "marriage."

To make civil unions equal to marriage you need to change every single law.

Its much easier/practical to simply change the definition of marriage to include GLBTQ people.

Govt should stay out of the family . . . except to remove children from the family because they can't afford them. Gotcha. Real consistent, bucko.

By the way, does refusing amnesty or citizenship to those with family in this country count as government interfering with family?

What are you talking about? Marriage doesn't necessarily mean in to be married in church. They want marriage instead if civil union because marriage brings greater LEGAL benefits. No church is gonna be forced to do anything. The gov can't tell a church to allow women to be priests. (Catholic church)

I believe that all illegal persons in this country should be removed from the space within our borders. Yes, even if.....Period.
If you have kids that you can not pay for they should be removed from your care.
You should only live in a house that you can afford.
Gov should stay out of the fam

@scal separate but equal never works. If you want marriage to stay religious, then call all government marriage civil unions.

@scal did you try to compare marriage to stop lights? Really?

@scal you don't want to be allowed to marry someone of the same sex? First of that's either worded terribly or you have some issues. Second, why does your personal preference dictate my rights?

Let people do what they want, marry whoever they want as long as it isn't physically hurting someone else. That being said, don't sue the priest who doesn't want to marry any couple, it's all about free choice.

Civil unions aren't equal. And marriage is obviously more than religious since the government acknowledges it. The religious side of marriage has never even been the issue

The issue is not, was not, and will never be about religious ceremonies. The government will acknowledge the marriage. Nobody cares what the churches do.

Freedom of religion. If an extremist black church refused to wed one of its congregants to a white woman, then it should suffer no legal penalty. I would hope, however, that people choose not to join racist religious communities.

Like others have said, just make "marriage" a religious entity and make all government sanctioned unions "civil unions". Make marriage religious and civil union the only thing that government is involved in. Problem solved. I'm atheist, so civil union is fine with me.

I guess but that seems like personal perception. You could say the same thing about adopted children compared to biological children. I'm sure the adoptive parents feel the same no matter what but people perceive it differently. I see your point though.

scalz: I used to feel the same way you do, so I completely understand your question. If it is called something different, people automatically assign it differing priorities. The rights are the same, but some people would only have a "civil union," not a real "marriage." Catch my drift?

Ishootzey: you're right it is hypothetical but I'd rather not take the chance that churches would be forced to compromise their beliefs or face consequences. Just let homosexual couples have civil unions and call it even.
