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.
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.
