    I know. Which is why I propose making everyone have civil unions…and leaving the word marriage up to your individual religion. If semantics is really that big of an issue, get rid of the word from government entirely.

    That would be an ideal way to handle the situation. However, that would require a monumental shift in the law — much bigger than the atrocity that was just visited upon us here in California.

    I agree – it's all semantics. I don't understand how straight people's marriages are threatened by gays getting married. If they didn't know it was happening, would the quality of their marriages be somehow different? Are straight marriages different now because 18,000 gay couples did do it? Call it "Schmarraige" if that works – but I know it don't. And if the govmint can take away the right to marry from gays, what's to stop them from taking away straight people's right to marry? Nothing. I can understand the folks who choose to just live together — "we don't need some piece of paper from the government to tell us we're married."
