Marriage is NOT a religious institution for everybody.
Another case of the tail wagging the dog....how much longer will the American people put up with this nonsense?
You say "American people" as if that's a single entity. The people on BOTH sides of this issue are "the American people". I sort of agree with 9:59, but I think the answer is to make the term "marriage" a religious institution that carries no specific legal rights. All the legal rights (inheritance, tax benefits, etc., etc.) should be tied to a "civil union" -- for both straights and gays. Religious institutions would be (already are) authorized to perform marriages, and also complete the appropriate paperwork for a civil union at the same time. OR you could go to the courthouse and get a civil union without the marriage -- but since the legal rights all go with the union, not the marriage, everyone then has the same rights.
Growing weary of this crap. Fair? Fair is subjective. Single people pay too much % in tax? Guess what, after the gay marriage bill, single people will STILL pay too much % in tax. As far as end of life, etc., get a good lawyer and a power of attorney.Next up: Polygamy. Hey, why not? All consenting adults, right?
Ah, 4:07, an oldie but a goodie. "Hmmm, I don't really have a valid argument for what's being discussed, so I'll bring up something that's unrelated and NOT being discussed, and try to fool everyone that taking the side I'm against will automatically lead to this unrelated thing." Well, maybe you have a point, so I'll follow your logic. If we allow gay marriage, the government will force everyone to buy Toyotas.
