Constitutional equal protection, to me, requires that anyone entering into the same promises and obligations associated with two people entering into a permanent shared living arrangement and that have been traditionally known as a "marriage contract" should receive the same benefits, under the law, as anyone else. You make the same legally binding promises, accept the same legally binding obligations, you get the same benefits and penalties as everyone else. Rename it a civil union contract, have the legal obligations set out (i.e. Party A promises to do x, y & z, Party B promises likewise) and have it properly witnessed and notorized by a court official.

If your church doesn't want to perform the sacrament of marriage, fine. The state shouldn't have any say in that. It is then up to you whether to belong to that religious institution or not. Further, I would have no problem with the State saying "if, as part of a religious ceremony, the parties agree to x, y, & z, and proof of that is provided to the appropriate State official, then no separate civil form is required to evidence the civil union contract". Church's would then be free to incorporate the State legal requirements into their sacramental services. If they chose not to do so, then participants simply have to fill out the forms at city hall.

Give unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar's, give unto God that which is God's.
You're just playing word games. Over time, the roles of men and women within marriage have changed. Social views on multiple wives, interracial relations, and divorce have changed. Legal rules regulating everything from the treatment of children and division of property to the grounds for divorce have changed. If you want to qualify and classify what marriage is that is your prerogative, just don't expect us not to keep evolving and keep it moving.

The idea of having multiple wives isn't absurd...it use to go on, it still goes on around the world. Maybe if men could have multiple wives the divorce rate in this country would be so high?

And no, the idea of marrying your dog is idiotic and absurd.

I guess. I thought my "word games" were doing just that. Separating the religion from the secular. Ultimately, you're right - civil union, marriage, title it what you wish - as far as the state is concerned it's still a legally binding contract. My only thought was to clarify the distinction between church and state in this particular contract and the role each played in it.

Lets be honest this is not about gays having the right to marry because they can do that now when ever they want. Its about the states recognizing the marriage is what this is about.
