So please do tell me how a civil union will do the same things as marriage.
Laws can't be changed?

The health concern is just one facet of the issue. I never claimed it was solely the definitive reason why homosexuality is wrong.

So, homosexuality is wrong in marriage, but perfectly fine as long as it is in a civil union?

I'm still trying to figure out if homosexuality is wrong, or if sodomy is wrong, or just the anal sex part of sodomy is wrong, or just gay marriage is wrong. This is all so confusing.

Or is it is wrong because gay people shove things down throats or something like that?

I know my gay neighbors make a killer pumpkin bread every fall that I shove down my own throat. I guess we are doing it wrong.

They are great people and friends. Their relationship has actually changed the minds of a couple of other neighbors about SSM. It's hard to know them and not wish them anything but a long and happy life together.

Since you continue to repeat the same thing, I'll do the same. Earlier, I said the following:

With that said, this is not about taking God out of anything for the 75,000th time. This is about all consenting adults being able to receive the same GOVERNMENT recognition for their relationship, known as marriage, equally. If you don't like that the government issues marriage LICENSES, that's an issue that should have been dealt with LONG ago. (Marriage = A term the government ALSO uses, not exclusive to the church. Baptism = an exclusive church time that does not warrant any special incentives from the government) Once again, marriage is the term the government uses, so sorry, it isn't an exclusive term reserved for super special Christians like yourself.

I'd love for you to comment on why you feel the term marriage can't be used after what I've said above.

And yet there it is. Next time you hear voices, ask them what that's all about.
