Response to beam me up scottie (Reply #77)

Tue Oct 6, 2015, 04:36 PM

82. Although you lack the ability, apparently, to put words into context, you DO enjoy the gift of

literacy, and you can read my comments and reasonings--which I have offered you, what--THREE times, now, already--and figure it out.

I actually used the term "CIVIL MARRIAGE" in that thread (if you bothered to read it, and not just grab the gotcha and run). My objection is re: distinguishing between CIVIL UNIONS and MARRIAGE. I don't think the state should offer one to heterosexuals, and the other/implied as "lesser" to homosexuals. It should be the same title for all. Further, it should not have a religious imperative associated with it.

Everyone who wants to form a contract between two people that entitles them to file a joint federal tax return should leave religion OUT of it. That's my point. You disagree?

How interesting that you are now taking the view of the religious communities against my "separation of church and state" argument. You're arguing against my point that unions solemnized by the state should be secular in nature, and any religious accommodation should be done in superfluous fashion!

Well, isn't this fascinating!!! Who knew?
