A marriage, according to the Bible and Webster's Dictionary, is between a man and woman. Who came up with the idea of a gay marriage anyway? People of the same sex should not be called husband and wife. It sounds totally ridiculous to introduce a man (in a gay marriage of two men) as one partner's "wife." Only in a gay community would this be fitting. Since a gay marriage is a union, a partnership, so to speak, why not call it a partnership? In a partnership, the union between same sex couples can be spelled out with many more terms than a marriage. Technically, two same sex people entering a partnership is just as it says, and introducing your partner to friends and other people, says it all. Example: "I'd like to introduce you to my partner,David. " Much more acceptable than "I'd like to introduce you to my wife David." Even "Ellen" can rub people the wrong way by calling Portia her "wife." Some still have an enormous stigma on gay people, mostly because of those who are the stereotype "fags," an unflattering slang expression for homosexuals. The ones who prance around, have a noticeable lisp and dress up to show their feminine side. Even television has made a niche for comics/actors who portray feminine performers. Remember "WILL AND GRACE." I have never been offended by feminine men. Two of my best friends were noticeably gay and they both died of Aids. As for being gay, looking gay or acting gay, people with these qualities still have a heart that can be broken by bullies. I say, let's treat them with respect and lobby for the technical term "Partnership " union, rather than "marriage. " (Mar 5, 2013 | post #1)
Marriage is simply a union, a contract, an agreement. However, two men calling their partner their wife is out of line. Same with two women calling one of them their wife or husband. Come on people. If you're trying to find acceptance with the universe, enter into a partnership and call your partner just that. Your "partner. " (May 22, 2012 | post #2)
All things lead to her. She got away with murder, partly because the jury liked Jose. How sad for the parents who loved and raised Caylee Marie. (May 22, 2012 | post #1)
