It appears likely that the traditional definition of marriage is about to become obsolete. The new definition will allow ANY two indivduals to marry and be entitled to federal benefits. I don't paricularly care if homosexuals get hooked up if they care about each other, I don't think it's right, but that's not my call. What does get my blood boiling is the use of the word marraige, When I hear that word I see a woman in a church walking down the aisle and her husband to be,waiting for her. They are in a place of worship to be married and blessed by God. Don't get me wrong I'm not some sort of religious fanatic and I sure as hell am not second guessing God. From what I am hearing I believe there are two major factors in play for all the ruckus. Gay couples want the same benefits as a traditional married couple. Probably the best solution would be to add that wording into a civil union agreement.giving a gay couple the same benefits. The title of the document might be called a Certificat of Civil Union The other factor pertains to the word marriage which I addressed in the opening of my post, I do believe that there are some gay couples that would like to be married in a church by a minister to add a religious flavor to the ceremony. If they could find a minister to join them together, no objections. But what I fear is a mandate that all churches and ministers must marry same sex couples. I also fear a pandors's box may soon be opening. But that is for another discusion All comments.pro and con are welcome.
