    I think this is the same epiphany most straight people have when they switch from anti to pro gay marriage. But to most of us it happens rather quietly and goes unnoticed.

    Yes, the same stupid emotional epiphany that all liberals indulge in while reason goes flying out the window. If one were to stop and think that marriage is really about children and the structure of society, they would oppose gay "marriage" which is nothing more than an emotional aberration.

    Civil Unions are what I will accept. Marriage has a meaning and gay couples do not meet the criteria of that meaning.

    I could even support a plan put forth by some on the left of this board. Take the Government out of the marriage business, have the Government JUST approve civil unions and let religions preform marriages with no binding legal status outside the religion.

    now THATS what im talking about.. kudos, dude.
    the beginning of a workable compramise.

    I can totally agree. Take the govt out of the marriage business and simply issue lisences for civil unions and let the church's observe marriage as they see fit with no legal implications.


    GODDAMN I LOVE AMERICA.


    now, if we can just get to legalizing the pot...

    You should try it--- You might like it and it WOULD make you more human (and perhaps humane)

    Marriage is only a word (which means to join one or more whatevers) until folks like you get ahold of it and decide it has only a religious meaning (and that just ain't true)

    Then I guess we'd have to deny marriage licenses to the infertile, women too old to conceive, men who can't "get it up"...

    ...maybe we could even put a clause in marriage licenses that sets a deadline for having children to stay married! Since marriage is an emotionless state of union designed for birthing babies... there shouldn't be much fuss in the above criteria.

    I could go for that! First step, untie hundreds of Federal laws and thousands of state and local laws from marriage.

    How can I hate you so much in one thread and love you in another? And, I've got one year to go before I can light up that big fat bowl... so, we've still got some time.
