homeschooling is also legal, at least you don't see people going to prison just because they say they are.
What next? Has the earth exploded? These things are fears? How has that fear worked out for you. I mean this has been here a long time, its not new. There should already be a result you can point at from this.
The thing I find very funny is that gay people want to be married at all. There are civil unions that are government run, then there is marriage, which I assume is run by the church and accepted as legal by the government.
Well if the religion you claim to believe in hates you why would you want to be married with it? This whole picking and choosing thing is out of hand. If you want a religion ( I don't ) then pick one and stick to it. They made the rules, you either obey them or quit. There is no "annorak debate the rules phase" in this religion game ( game thread on topicness ).
I also don't understand how a government can make a church marry gay people if they don't want to. Or stop them.
Marriages are not through the church. Should atheists who wish to get married only get civil unions as well? There are differences between civil unions and marriages as well, they aren't the same thing.
Civil unions are only available in some states.
No civil unification is taken into account past the borders of the state in which you got the civil union, unlike marriage which is taken into account ANYWHERE.
No joint taxes.
It is not equal, don't make it seem equal.
