Why should we care? If a church wants to recognize gay marraige, isn't that their right to do so? Besides, what is marraige anyway? Isn't it simply an agreement between two people to commit to each other for the rest of their lives? Why should anyone care what two peple do? No, the issue is really not about marraige, it is about having the government recognize that union, so that gay couples who are recognized by the government as being married, get some of the same benefits as opposite sex couples who the government recongizes as being married. Opposite sex couples who live together and have children also don't have the same benefits as opposite sex couples who the governemtnr recongnizes as being married, do they?

Since I’ve already written that polygamy – regardless of how weird it is – is not something that demands government intervention, you won’t be surprised that I also think that gay marriage is a non-issue.

I don’t care if two guys want to get together. I don’t care if some religion (or some other group) wants to sanction their union, and I don’t care if they want to call it marriage, or make up some new word.

But I also don’t care if some churches don’t want to sanction same-sex unions. And I don’t care if some religious people don’t...
