Saying my piece

I’ve been keeping relatively quiet with the gay marriage subject, because I really think were going about it wrong way. Hear me out…

I am willing to concede that the term “marriage”, is primarily a religious “institution”, for a lack of better words.

Having stated that; one of the founding principles of the United States of America is the separation of church and state. So it seems to me, that the government just needs to eliminate word “marriage”, replace it with something like “civil unions” across the board. Then it remains a separation of church and state, and takes the power away from what makes some people feel fearful.

Quite honestly, I couldn’t care less about being able to get “married”, in the eyes of the government, or a church, but I will take the same rights as any other tax paying citizen of this country.

I guess in the end it doesn’t really matter. The ultimate outcome is the same. Love will always prevail, it’s all that is!

    Plus your a catch so the government needs to get it together so someone can scoop you up!
    Hope your doing well, I think of you whenever I go to Starbucks.

    Frankly, I think you’ve got it backwards.

    There is a distinct difference between the 1) “sacrament of marriage” that happens in a religious institution, is essentially a “relationship blessing” performed by someone who just happens to have the authority to sign a marriage license on behalf of the government, and 2) the civil Marriage Agreement between two individuals and the government that provides them 1,100+ benefits under federal law.

    The church is not necessary for a marriage to occur. The government is.

      I understand what you’re speaking of. my point being that if you take away the language of the religions use, they don’t have any leg to stand on.
