Re: UNISEX PEE WATCHERS UNITE!
Do we have some civil need to grant "marriage" to a same-sex couple if we already have granted them their civil-union rights.

If we have already granted civil union rights, then correct me if I'm wrong, but they can call themselves "married" anyway, just like anybody else can.

Or, are you proposing legislation that prevents people from describing themselves as "married" unless they have the imprimatur of a church, as you implied earlier? I apologize if I misunderstood but that's what I thought you were saying.

There should be no such thing as a "marriage" license in any legal terms.

I agree 100%. It's just that when you say "I think the churches should be in charge of marriage" I'm not sure if what you mean is, nobody can say they're married unless a church says they are too, and we're going to enforce that with some kind of law.

That seems ridiculous. I apologize if I misunderstood but that's what I thought you were saying. I think the legal concept of "marriage" should be vacated, but I don't think there should be any legal impediment to two people adopting the social mantle of marriage, if they chose to.

Re: Out of the closet
I regard this as functionally equivalent to gays demanding their same-sex marriage rights. Religio-medicine is as queer to American modernity as homo-matrimony.

Hootmon,

You have been bringing up unrelated opinions of yours. Please do not continue in this vein as it can be construed as an attempted hijacking of a thread.

There is no shortage of threads concerning homosexuality. If you have a gripe with homosexual marriage, please take it up in a more appropriate forum.

Any objections you have to this ruling can be brought to my attention in the General Discussions of Moderator Procedure forum.

DO NOT respond to such objections in this forum.
