Assuming in all states; these both would entitle you to the same privilages.
Really? I'd like to know. I've seen some say they don't support Gay Marriage but they don't mind Civil-Union's. What is the difference to you; and why does it matter?
I'm am not religious; will not be "married" in a Church or by any member of any clergy; but by a Notary (which is legal in our state). My SO is a man; we have two natural born children. I could give a rats ass if someone wanted to say we had a Civil Union and not a marriage ceremony since it was a secular event rather than a religious one.
And if it's not YOUR church preforming said same-sex ceremony; why do you care? What impact does it have on your life?

Not so much hung up on words as much as I am hung up on the impact of those words according to law and what doors that could open for litigation against clergy that refuse to 'marry' a gay couple.

I am not against SSM. My comment is really directed at the fact that the wording needs to be very carefully written to protect all parties from future litigation. I don't know why that would be a problem for anyone to understand. While I think that gay people should be able to marry, I also think that churches and institutions that are not in support of gay marriage should not face legal troubles for refusing to marry gay couples. Sorry if you disagree.

You know anon...you are pretty crappy. You want people to respect what you believe and how YOU believe things should be while you MOCK their faith.
there is no discussing things with someone who believes as you. If you believe your god physically/literally destroyed villages; (a) that's not a god I'd like to follow & (b) you're not working from the same base of reality as I am. But thanks for playing.
I refuse to respect YOUR stance and YOUR beliefs if you refuse to respect someone elses. WAY to teach tolerance. I hear a lot of you on here talking about how Christians are such hypocrites when you are JUST as hypocritical!
