Gay people should be allowed a legal union with equal rights under the law. If that is the basis for their arguments I agree. Why not have two designations? If the word marriaige is so important have T and N after the word. Traditional and Non-traditional. The gay union will never be procreative, and procreation is the only thing that keeps our planet alive and growing. Gays can adopt, straights can choose not to reproduce but the fact remains, it will never be the same.
