My opinion, get the government completely out of the marriage/civil-union/friends with tax benefits/incest business altogether. Call them all civil unions for tax and legal purposes [..]
Your opinion contradicts itself and is therefore invalid.
If you think there should be any "tax and legal purposes", then you think that the government should be in, not out.

Ok, this is awesome. I know they're lowering themselves to the hateful level of the Christian right but in this case it`s completely deserved and far more effective IMO. If people like Amy could understand kindness then they`d be a different kind of "Christian" in the first place, not a bigot who uses the bible to justify their bigotry! BTW Amy, there`s far more said against adultery AND gluttony (ahem) in the Bible than there is against homosexuals.....

It could be for religious reasons. Or it could be simple f-ing common sense. Here, let me look up the word "marriage" in my dictionary:
Marriage (n) "the state of being united with a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual or contractual relationship recognized by law"
So it looks like athiests can get "married" but 2 dudes or 2 chicks can't. No religion involved at all. Just common word definitions.
Reality is I don`t particularly give a horse testicle what they call it. Doesn`t bother me in the least. But to say that there is absolutely no secular argument is idiotic.
My opinion, get the government completely out of the marriage/civil-union/friends with tax benefits/incest business altogether. Call them all civil unions for tax and legal purposes and let the people or churches or wiccan circles or gay communes or athiest clubs or whoever else needs a group identity call them whatever the f
