Seperation of Church and State. The Charter doesn't specify who can get married; and when we legalized homosexual relationships, we said they are as legitimate as heterosexual ones. Frankly I don't see how this will have any affect on me; and therefore I support it, as it does me no harm, and benifits those who are already in life long relationships.

My whole theory on this is that religion gave up the right to determine who can and cannot get married the second religions let the government issue marriage licenses. At the point that it is a state instiution and the state cannot discriminate in the same way a private instituion can. So if we are to be true to the laws and philosophies of the United States same-sex marriage has to be legalized. That is the theoretical.

The practical is that it will eventually become legalized in the U.S. but I doubt it will be anytime soon. It was, what, 30 years ago(?) homosexuality was still considered a mental desiese and now homosexuals expect to make the jump from desiesed to fully accepted in such a short time? Ain't going to happen, it took the blacks over 200 years.

But there is no doubt in my mind that history will judge the anti-gay crowd in the same manner that it currently judges the KKK so I've decided to side with justice.


EDIT: I think this goes in the off topic forum

one thing we found here in NZ was that the wording was important, it's not a marriage becasue marriage has to do with a religion....however a same sex UNION doesn't carry the same emotional response.

all though it has polarised many people here our parliment voted through the civil unions bill...which doesn't descriminate against gender

I don't see why they can just keep it with a Union with all the same benefits. "Marriage" indeed I think is treading on religious territory. Just call it a Union officially. No one's going to care.
