ST. PAUL, Minn. - More valuable than any poll, Minnesota lawmakers got a strong pulse of their constituents this week on gay marriage through district-by-district, town-by-town results of a vote that rejected a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

A far simpler idea is to KEEP marriage legal for all! There is nothing "simple" about your suggestion. It has to be approved in each of fifty states, DC, territories and proectorates, and the federal government. After that, your civil whatchamacallits still won't be understood here, much less the rest of the world.

One post he's passionately arguing FOR his hypothetical scenario, and the next he says it's no big deal. Sounds like he just wants to argue. Wonder why he's so interested in a compromise? It's in our favor to go to trial and NOT settle out of Court.

You just answered your own question. The only time a lawyer ever seeks a compromise over a court trial is when they have a weak case.

I know. If find it hilarious she's trying to convince the 10% of the population that has no control over anything, instead of the 90% which has an overwhelming super-duper majority in every legislative body in every state and the federal govt to boot.

If the heteros wanted to change to "civil partnerships", they could have done so at ANY time over the past 30+ years! Gee, I wonder why they're suddenly floating this idea now??

Fine, then change it now.

Straight people are the overwhelming supermajority in this country; they can change the law to civil partnerships for all at any time.
Let us know when that's done.

We won. You lost. Get over it, boy.

And besides, the REAL reason you get banned is because you keep propositioning underage boys. Deal with it.

go back and read the 100 times I said ALL people get a civil partnership...not just gays... ALL PEOPLE...
can you at least drop your blind rage for one second and grasp this point?
the institution of civil partnership would be the only recognized legal institution...marriage would be only a religious term...
100 times I have written this and you refuse to hear it?
why do you think that is John?
Also, I could swear up and down that you are an illegal immigrant, but since your not, how much would you care?
That's how I feel about you guys guessing what i do for a living...
I don't need to be anything to make my point, the person most interested in saying what i do is Mona...but she doesn't mind insisting on delusion....
Why don't YOU go back and read the 100 times you've been told "GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, TOOTSE!"

When you can convince enough non-religious married couples that they need to give up the legal term "marriage" to appease the prejudices of a small group of ignorant religious fools that wish to force their religious bigotry on everyone else, we can talk.

Until then, you're just wasting your time.

<quoted text>....Frankly, a lot of the religious think the change in law will mean their churches have to perform weddings and other ignorant crud like that...by GIVING them the name marriage, the fear you guys will infiltrate their religion would be addressed (even if it was never going to happen anyway)
By making all civil relationships partnerships, we acknowledge them to be what you want them to be. two people a piece of paper and some assets...
let religion try to mold society...
Again, WHY should non-religious, civilly married couples give up the legal term marriage to appease a small group of religious fools that can't bring themselves to understand the difference between civil and religious marriage?

Definitely a possible topic for discussion ... on it's own thread ... IFF you find an article to base it upon.

Stop trolling.
