It is interesting that the sentence before you say "[Marriage] is a bond between a man and a woman," you talk about how if gays are allowed to marry it will take the little goody bag marriage can provide. So you’re saying since gay unions could take some benefit away from people marrying, they should stop gay marriage? Many of these people who want to get married, are not trying to steal benefits away from other Americans, all they want is equal rights with any other American citizen. They do not want to change people’s religion, or force them to change their views; they just want the rights promised to them as American citizens. None of this has to take place in a church, or be connected to any religion. Many are right when they say gay civil unions are about recognition, and respect, but more importantly they are about letting Americans live a happy, free live in a country founded on the protection of Civil Liberties.
