Being gay is your personal business, no prob there, but calling a union that consists of same sex partners that inherently cannot produce natural born children is not a marriage. It is really a semantic issue for me not a moral one. Though plenty of "normal" marriages are unable to produce children for a variety of reasons it is not inherent that a man and woman cannot conceive a child. Throughout the history of man one of the main if not the only reason for marriage was to propagate the species. Woman and man is a marriage - civil union is the same sex version.

I believe your views on marriage are false and a misrepresentation of what it actually is. Marriage is an interesting concept that has evolved throughout human civilization. 200 years ago you hardly had a choice who you married because your family decided for you. Less than 50 years ago in many parts of the country is was illegal for a black man to marry a white women. The face of marriage and what is considered "moral" is ever changing in our society. The same arguments used today against marriage equality are eerily similar to the ones used against the civil rights movement. Being against marriage equality today will be looked at no differently 50 years from now in the history books as being against the civil rights movement 50 years ago.
