    Marriage is for the church

    Civil union is for gays and lesbians

    The sacrament of marriage is for the Church.

    When you get married, you get a "marriage license" from the state. When you have the ceremony performed, that is the sacrament of marriage by the institution governing your faith.

    Ya dig?

    I support gay marriage. Then they can get divorced like the rest of us.

    It only fails if you allow them to deliberately obfuscate the matter with the dual meaning of the term.

    We're not looking for religious leaders to marry us. We're only looking to receive the same license opposite-sex couples get.

    My single biggest problem with the issue is how the "Christian" right wingers seem to believe that religious freedom means THEM being free to impose THEIR values on everyone else. If they can't force the rest of the country to live the way want them to (and not necessarily how they themselves live), they start screaming how their faith is being assaulted, they are under attack!!!

    Why, you want people to think you're normal too?

    OMG, the streaming media server that the state of NJ uses has got to be from 1996. :facepalm:

    It keeps cutting out like every 20 seconds to a 2 minutes.
    IE, FF, Chrome, hell even Real Player.

    No dice.

    well, we know I'm not normal, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't be treated equally in the eyes of the law. :jj:

    im not sure of the separate equal deal...every one is equal or should be any way...but as bad as the economy is...when i think of the weddings ive been to or participated in....it is not cheap ....like i said from the marriage license to renting motels and dance halls....why would they not want that....ponderous
