Surely a civil union gives you the exact same rights without the negitive, religious sacrament, overtones.
After a certain amount of years, but why call it a civil union, you do not have to be religious to get married.......so whats the problem with gay people getting married when the religious lot have no objections to the non religious people doing it?
I got married, am not religious, and no one stood outside the registry office with a banner objecting.
If non religious people can get married, then why can not gay people and why change whats its called?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

When heterosexuals are banned from getting a divorce and truly hold marriage to be the sacred bond they claim it is, then I will be satisfied with just a civil union.

But does your daughter not clean her room because she has watched you not clean the house? i doubt it. :blush:


Oh she sure knew how to copy the lazy act..  From she was a baby, she was forever round my hubbys cousins house, and their young daughter Linzi is one lazy hallion.. Becky told us why should she clean her room, when Linzi doesn't have to?    I said, because I am NOT Linzis mother, you do what I say.. She eventually does because she knows that I will punish her by removing the things she likes more ..

       I think gays should be allowed to marry,          

Well I am not that liberal minded, I think if they got married, they will turn others gay too..  It's just WRONG..  wrong I tell ya

         They are people and should be allowed to be man and man or woman and woman if they like.              

*shudders*  UHHH  bring back the law that makes it all illegal..  It's not right, it's not even in the same postcode as right..

I won't allow my family to watch anything gay, regardless how funny Alan Car and Graham Norton is.. PFFFT  no thank you  lol

I am not religious and therefor see marriage as outdated. Marriage was started by and continues to be a religious sacrament. If my parnter and I ever choose to have a ceremony it will be a civil union. I see no difference between the two except the religious overtones.

The reason non religious people are encouraged to marry in churches is that you are a man and woman who could be potential church goers

What difference does it make, if they get married in a registry office why should it be anyone elses business?  getting married does not mean you are religious.
