Did anyone ever stop to think about calling same sex unions marriage? Give them the same rights as a married hetero-couple. Make laws to protect their rights. But why curse them into a failing institution. I love my marriage past 7 years that is rare
It is not the name, it is the principle. By calling same sex marriages by another name it is implying that the love between those people have a lesser value in our society. U can't understand what that means until U R on the receiving end of bigotry
d. william that is horse pa tutti. It is different. Pretending it is the same cheapens and lessons it. It is different. It is not the same. Good bad or indifferent it is different. Are they ashamed of that? Then it surely is not good. Proud and gay.
'Same but different' is NOT equality. It means one is second rate. Even the same rights - it's still viewed as second rate. Not equal.
Eric: horse pa tutti right back at ya.There R no differences in the love 1 has 4 another & marriage must B equal 4 everyone. No 1 has the right to judge another 4 any reason. U can't dole out equality in degrees. religion does that - law must no
Ah horse pucky. If different equals lack of equality, then how do we "celebrate diversity"? If differences are always negative what would be positive? Why would one group want to join another that has about a 50% failure rate? Is it the religion?
E.D. UR logic amuses me.There is a big difference between diversity,equality&discrimination.I no U no the difference.We also discriminate against diversity.Religion is the biggest cause.UR last comment sums it all up.no 1 s/b ashamed of who we R
Well d. William you may have hit the nail on the head. I suppose I projected, as I am ashamed my first marriage ended in divorce. I know I should not be but I am. So that probably skews my views.

I thought the Ancient Greeks had over a thousand year run. I thought the Roman empire 500 years. Of course the Khan dynasties also lasted awhile. But maybe you are right.
You're a real smarty, aren't you? What you said still doesn't disprove the fact that nations do not become stronger or more stable accepting this practice.
Well yes I am a smarty britches, and I do think your point is very valid for discussion. But we really do not know how this will work, as those mentioned observed it as a right of the state, we are seeing it as a human right. That difference maybe.
