A civil union or domestic partnership "is a promise between two people", marriage is more.
If you wouldn't settle for a civil union or a domestic partnership, why should gays?
If you're a bigot, yes. But you conveniently forget that many states that prohibited legal recognition of same sex marriage also banned legal recognition of relationships approximately marriage (i.e., civil unions and domestic partnerships). Which makes it pretty obvious that the intent wasn't to "protect traditional marriage" but rather to inflict animus and harm against gays.Civil unions and domestic partnerships are perfect compromise
No you're not; you're a bigot who seeks to inflict your prejudice upon gays by enacting laws that unconstitutionally discriminates against them and causes them actual harm.I'm a middle of the road moderate who doesn't want radical change by licensing sex segregated marriage or new laws against homosexual relationships.
No, the extremists are the ones who wish to violate the constitution to slake their prejudice against gays. Like you, Brian.The extremists want to redefine marriage or criminalize same sex relationships; they are the radicals.
