Why No State, Including Colorado, Should Accept “Civil Unions”

This author and others miss the point that you make. Gov't has no business being in the marriage business as that is a function of the church. The gov't should only issue civil unions so people have the legal rights and privileges that go with a committed union. The only issue I would diverge from your statement and that is I think we need the Fair Tax not the flat tax. I want the gov't out of getting info on my income and the source of my income and the Fair Tax would do that along with the bonus of taxing money from the black market that is in excess of 1 T dollars. Hopefully we can get political leaders to see our point and we can get this stupid debate out of the political arena.

And you want to strip marriage from millions and millions of Atheists...take away their rights. Why is that again?

Note: This testimony was provided to the Colorado House Judiciary Committee on May 3, 2012 concerning Colorado S.B. 002, a proposed “civil unions” bill.

Well-meaning folks, including legislators, who oppose redefining marriage, yet support civil unions and domestic partnerships for same-sex couples, do so with the mistaken belief that both sides of the marriage debate will be satisfied with this apparent compromise. In practice, however, neither side is happy. And more importantly, as a legal matter, civil union laws absolutely undermine the case for marriage.

Make no mistake about it; a vote for this bill is a vote for same-sex “marriage.”...
