As far as I'm concerned, the government should not be involved in marriage at all. Right now there are over 1,000 rights and benefits accorded to married people by the government that you don't get if you're just in a civil union. Government should give everyone the same rights and benefits and people can call their union whatever they want. They can get married in a church or on a website. I don't really care. I just don't think that we should be letting religion dictate who gets what rights and benefits from the government.

I agree. Personally I find the whole idea of homosexuality disgusting, but if it makes other people happy, it isn't hurting anyone, and it's not in my face to the point of being obnoxious, I can't really oppose it. If I'm honest with myself, I can't come up with any good reason that gay people can't marry if they want to. I keep asking my wife about it, and I never really get a satisfactory answer.

Still, I respect her (and other Christians') beliefs, even if I don't agree with them. It's a shame so few people can do this nowadays.
