    There should be a 'I don't care' option.

    oooh, you're so edgy. It's so cool and interesting to not care about pressing political issues that oppress entire groups of people. I'm sooooooooo impressed!

    There is one. It's called "not replying to the thread".

    But Marriage has existed long before organized religion, and it exists today without religion. There are also rights and benefits that come with marriage.

    Religion does not, and should not, own the word "marriage."

    Actually the word has its root in the Latin verb maritare, so the pagan Roman religion owns the word marriage.

    Just saying.

    My rationale is more that there is a great deal tied up with the term marriage, and I don't think the government should be a part of all that, just how the law deals with people. And going down to that treats everyone the same, and i think it also gets rid of some of the overtones that marriage has by allowing the legal recognition without it being associated with the larger concept of marriage.

    And Hinduism, which predated all of the Abrahamic religions, and Buddhism and Zoroastrianism, which predated 2 of the 3 Abrahamic religions; none of which seem to be going away...

    Now that's just adding clutter to Guy's good post.


    Unrelated, on further thought, I might've been the one (or one of the ones) that suggested the poll be anonymous. I can't remember if I just thought that, or if I promoted that.

    I am a straight man who will admit he likes Titanic but I refuse to watch Brokeback Mountain. I fully support same sex marriages.

    I support it fully but also believe state governments should ultimately get out of the marriage licensing business.

    If religious people don't want to marry same sex couples, that's their call. Just don't stop other people.

    Reading through this thread, it is obvious that it was those who oppose SSM that wanted anonymity... I wonder why.
