In her panic over the unknown, what aisling is apparently unaware of, is that the very presence of civil unions is contributing to the demise of her precious "marriage."<quoted text>That's hysterical. You are so foolish, you think that civil unions will affect society differently than gay marriages. It's the same relationship with the same benefits and responsibilities. It's just "separate" (and not equal) for the purpose of assuaging the less intelligent who are threatened by it.
Come on, June! Let's end this.
Anywhere civil unions exist, STRAIGHT COUPLES are opting to forego their right to marriage and electing to enter into civil unions instead. Why? I don't know, but it means that the more oppressive marriage laws remain, the fewer and fewer couples will be marrying.
All the while, people like aisling will be kicking and crying about the "destruction of marriage", without even the slightest clue that it's her own attitude and intolerance that are destroying it.
