Now holy matrimony I can understand. That is religious. Marriage is a legal binding contract. So really just because it was borrowed in the 12th century like so many other customs does not make it theirs!!! Marriage existed before religion and will still be there if religion ceases to exist. However holy matrimony will not. So really why lay claim to some thing that does not belong to you in the first place?Answer Question

Personally I don't have a problem with same sex marriage and feel everyone should be allowed to be married if they want, but the reason the name matters for so many is because they don't want to be forced to have to preform same sex marriages in their churches if they become legalized. If gay marriage is legal the government could force churches to perform marriage ceremonies for any couple he requests it, even if this goes against what they believe.
