18. What's the difference between "marriage" and "partnership"?
Why draw a line at legal and social acceptance? People only oppose gay marriage because because of the idea of having homosexuality sanctioned officially would make them have to accept socially what they call a sin in their particular religions. The outlawing of gay marriage serves no purpose other than preventing gays from marrying.

Some christian/judeaic/muslim sins should be laws, like no murder. Others don't affect anyone but the consenting people involved. Opposition to gay marriage is a manifestation of people being overly concerned about the religion of otehr people. In my religion, THAT's a sin.
