No thank you. The federal government doesn't recognize civil unions.
SS couples are married. FYI.... gay couples have been legally marrying for 10 years now. you live in an alternate reality, please post on their forum.
Take it up with the federal government, and stop trying to change the english language....and history.

So, I posit that denying a couple the right to marry for the sole reason that they are gay is hurtful and benefits no-one.

Do you agree with this statement? If not, which part do you not agree with?
I was pretty clear. SScouples should be afforded all of the same rights/privileges of a married man/woman, except, it is not a marriage. It is a civil union of a SS couple..
Since your definition of marriage is different than has been the traditional historic definition, may it include 3 folks? or a horse? or?????

Poetic Justice
It is all a matter of time now, recognized in all 50 states by the federal government and more and more individual states every year.
But D, the 50 states are each their own sovereign places. To applaud the Federal government overstepping its bounds, in order to make the USA a generic entity, with no states having a variety, is a poison to us all. Surely you see that? Of course you do, you corporate toadie, you must have a reason to cheer the downfall of individuality in America?

Here is the simplest way of putting it: Denying a couple the right to marry for the sole reason that they are gay is hurtful and benefits no-one.

I think you may have embodied your anti-gay stance too deeply for me to reach.
I don't understand. What is it that you are afraid of? They are being denied something that wasn't meant for them. Just as we are supposed to deny illegals American citizenship. Don't imagine that you are going to be able to deter me from my stance, it is the right one. I have embodied nothing, I am in tune with the propriety of things. Where does your "anything goes" stance stem from? A morally confused base, by any chance?

It is obvious that you have a good heart, but you have been led down the primrose path.
Marriage is the civil union/spiritual union of one man and one woman.
SScouples can never be married. SScouples can have a civil union, and I suppose they have a spiritual union, but they will never have a one man/one woman relationship.
Perhaps another name would better describe the SS civil union.
Garriage perhaps?
Leave the term "marriage" for what it has been forever. The civil union of one man and one woman........and go ahead and have all of the SS civil unions you desire.
Great post.

I prefer "refuse to grant" instead of "deny", don't you? It puts things in the proper light.

Actually, you're living in the immediate now. You are preferring to use the recent turn of events, instead of viewing our existence in its entirety. Perhaps, you could petition the Fed to recognize "civil unions", instead of forcing your inclusion into an institution that has never allowed for your type of relationship. Is it better to besmirch someone else's tradition, instead of creating your own? Forced inclusion into our party does not grant any sort of legitimacy. It cheapens what we have cherished, and diminishes it.

Yes, as all that they have to do is stand their ground, and not bow to the peer pressure that is todays lobbying. They don't have to accept any sort of Federal intervention, as the Constitution grants the final say to the individual states. Most of the country knows this, but is many states have been seeded, in order to accomplish this miraculous feat of turning the country over to subversive parties.

To paraphrase the poster to whom you are responding: "Testify!". Xavier said that, more than once. I think it sounds silly, but it seemed a good time to use it...
