Britain legalizes same-sex civil unions

The one thing that almost amuses me over this issue is the fact that so many people make a fuss over calling it "marriage". A rose by any other name, people. The gay rights people are like, "Well, yeah, we have the same rights as a married couple now, but it's not *really* a marriage!" and the Christian people against it are saying, "It's a marriage, regardless of what you call it!"

For once, I have to agree with the Christians. If you want it to be a marriage, then it is. Call it whatever you want. When my mom remarried, she had a civil union because neither she nor her husband was Christian, and they didn't want to marry in a church. They wrote their own vows, and had a group of about twenty-five friends and family come to watch. It was beautiful. Like, I'm getting teary-eyed thinking about it beautiful.

I, for what it's worth, think this is a big step ahead for the world. Maybe America will see this and decide to follow their lead. I wish they would.

We should move
I'm glad that people out there are growing more accepting of the fact that homosexuality is out there and is not going to go away.

But like Stein says, "A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose." So until the whole world excepts homosexuality, there is no winner in this whole "marriage" dispute.

I hope I'm alive to see the day America follows Britain, lol.

Hello
I totally agree. I also think it is neat that you remember your mom's wedding with emotion! It is really cool.
