I think what people really support is the union of gays called something besides 'marriage'. In the words of Slick Willie during his impeachment trial, the gov't runs on words and their definition. He convinced congress of this using what Monica did to him was not sex. The definition of marriage is the union of 1 man and 1 woman. As defied for 12,000 years. What the gay community needs to do is coin a new word for their union... Their union can't be called marriage.
"Their union can't be called marriage"
yes it can, and it will. their marriages are no less important to them than yours is to you. you wingnuts can either change or die off, but either way human rights are coming for gay folks.
