civil unions not marriage (for all)
November 11, 2008
I am a proponent of people minding their own business about who you choose to love. However, I know that I live in a world with many people who react with fear to anything they don’t consider normal.
Someone smarter than me suggested that government should only give out civil union licences – whether you are homosexual, heterosexual, or other. Marriage or any other spiritual ceremony would then be a personal choice. I think this clearly expresses my feelings for compromise.
Using this approach, civil rights can be equally conferred to all, and marriage can still be relevant and spiritual because it is between you and your faith.
