I do wish journalists and journalist wannabes would stop using terms such as "gay marriage" and "Gay marriage licenses." They are just "marriage" and "marriage licenses" that are no different for same sex couples. Wisconsin already has domestic partnerships, but that is a long way from marriage, and obviously the ban on same sex marriage was/is unconstitutional.

And I say "journalist wannabes" because EDGE plasters the page with several Calvin Klein underwear ads that take up 10 times more space than the "article." I'm no prude, but unless one of these models wants to marry an old fart like me, they don't need to be all over the "news."

'Marriage" refers to REAL marriage between a man and woman. You know, the one that's been around for thousands of years.
Oh, you mean the polygamous sort with child brides and women as mere property?

No wonder you like the past so much.

Nope, you'd be wrong........Marriage refers to what happens between two consenting adults who have decide to make a commitment to each other and it either involves an opposite-sex couple or a Same-Sex Couple.....and the marriage license issued by the state is EXACTLY the same one!!!

The bigots will always call it "gay marriage", just like they still call some marriages "inter-racial marriages".

But in reality marriage is the same it has always been - between a man and woman.
Apart from the fact that that was rarely the reality in Western history and is not the reality now, "Spot on!"

No, in fact there is NOTHING wrong with showing the history of the fight that the GLBTQI community has had to overcome, nor the contributions that have been made to society by folks who also happen to be Gay or Lesbian!!!

You want to focus on something that is NOT being taught nor introduced to be taught!!!

Marriage has NOT always been defined as just between a man and a woman......that definition happened when the Church decided to become involved with marriage..........and "GAY" marriage simply is NOTHING more than a FALLACY that you fight with because it simply DOESN'T exist!!!

By the way....you're losing not only the battle, but the war as well!!!

That old Anita Bryant gambit's ship is sinking. If only you had the smarts rats do and abandon ship.
We understand you are obsessed with child molestation, but this has nothing to do with two adults being treated equally under the law.

I agree. I have no problem with calling it a same sex marriage (SSM) but calling it gay marriage is just poor journalism.

They intentionally use the term gay as a buzzword to get more media exposure.
