Marriage, civil union, whatever. Call it the Two-Dude Fun Package for all I care.

A dog is a cat. An eagle is a leopard. Black is white.

Words matter. No matter how they dress it up, same-sex relationships are not marriages. Period. End of story.

I can name 20 things wrong with America that are more important than "gay marriage".

Seeing how marriage part of the bedrock of civilization, it should be within the top 5 of your personal list. If it isn't, you would be no different than a left-winger, and subsequently, on the wrong forum.

Show 'em my motto!

Fine, let me start listing off until I get to gay marriage. Not all of these can be easily solved, but they are bigger problems than gay marriage IMO (and I hope you will agree).

NOT in rank-order.

The huge burden of entitlement programs.
The need for tort reform.
The lack of judges for criminal cases.
Excess federal power over states (such as the .08 requirement recently)
A tax system that takes billions of dollars to run.
Companies that are leaving the US, both HQ and factories.
Gas Prices.
Assaults on the First Amendment.
Assaults on the Second Amendment.

Inner-city schools where kids graduate but can't read.
1 million abortions annually.
An incompetent news media.
A drug war criminalizing millions while ignoring drug-lords.

OK, I can only think of 14 right now, but my point still stands. There are more important issues than the civil union debate.
