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!
