You said that we should pursue our own legal relationship status with our own set of benefits and protections.
Same-Sex Couples will pursue the exact same set of benefits and protections that Opposite-Sex Couples possess in marriage.
So, our relationships would be identical in every way to your relationships from a legal standpoint.
That being the case, you would have two identical contracts with different names (if you get your way).
Name two other legal contracts that are identical in every way, except in name.
Answer the question.
And the name is what they fear... they are frightened half to death.. by a word.

The name does not belong to them, many religions and non-religious use the same word, that word is not their personal property, and from a recognition perspective, it is a legal term.

Our laws are applied equally ( or are supposed to be ) regardless of Race, Creed, Color, Sex, Religion, Orientation or National Origin.

So it's not okay to attack someone for being gay, but it is okay to attack someone's religion?

I was stating a fact, hate does not sell like it used to.

You are free to verbally attack anyone you want to, but no one is not out to deny religious people marriage, the way you are wanting to deny marriage to same sex folks.

You are the one attacking... not me, and not them.

I even heard a lesbian from Denver, yesterday, on the radio, blasting Jason Collins, for being a coward, "priming the talk show pump" (as she put it) and questioning the need for any of you to come out, at all. A big publicity stunt. "Sexualizing everything" was the phrase I heard, and "robbing kids of their innocence", as well, 13 year olds, needing to focus more on orientation, than the game...
Hmm.. As I've said before. We always congratulate the broken ones for admitting their flaws in public. Hence, the big "I'm proud of you" speeches..
You're obviously broken, and yet no one praises you. What's up with that?

Seriously, you are going to hurt your limp wrist gay twirling like that!
First you say word use doesn't matter, now you are trying to limit the word marriage to a legal term. That is either the feminine side that can't make up her mind, or one silly stupid kid playing on the Internet.
It doesn't make a hill of beans difference who applies the word marriage to SS couples, or what affect it does or does not have. A sterile duplicated half is not marriage. Even your child knows the difference between mom and dad and a redumbant gendered couple.
Duh.
<quoted text>
ANOTHER slimy shift???
Now marriage has 'legal implications'???
Moreover, I have never 'focused on the religious impact'. I have simply said ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior AND a silly sterile redumbant half of marriage.
Nor are those 'opinions', they are simple reality.
Just a heads up limp twit, the law can't equate the union of a diverse gendered couple with a duplicate half. Nor can the law equate mom and dad with a default sterile half plus a stranger.
Simply put, there is no such thing as a ss 'marriage'.
Smile.
Simply put, there is no such thing as a sane chimera.

I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
