    "Marriage" is a religious institution and should therefore be handled by churches. They can approve and deny whoever they see fit based on their religious dogmas.
    Changing it just for the sake of semantics, or to not disrespect religion, doesn't seem like strong enough reason. Some support it just to spite gay people by making it harder for them to get "married".

    People suicide bomb each other for semantics.

    There is a good reason for separation of Church and State.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Well until someone suicide bombs themselves over this, it's not important enough.

    And if their head explodes over their state allowing gay people to get a marriage license, that doesn't count.

    Yes, that's right. We shouldn't do anything the way it is supposed to be done until someone gets killed over it.

    I completely agree. It's just a word and it's really superficial to get bent out of shape about it. A religious marriage is a commitment to God by two people to support each other. Other people and how they view what the word means should not matter.

    I don't care whatever it's call, civil union or marriage as long as every tax payer are able to get the same benefits regardless of their gender.

    Actually, even then.. terrorism wouldn't help the cause at all.

    It's not looking good.

    Are you guys dumb or willfully ignorant?

    To me, "messiah" is just a word, to some, it's a reason for existence.

    The whole damn gay marriage controversy is over a word.
    There were tons of religious wars throughout history over "just words".

    I'm not ignorant I know perfectly well what is going on. People in order to get married by God does not need to go to get a marriage license from the government and get permission from the government. That is not the religious meaning of the word marriage. I'm looking at the meaning behind the word not the actual word.

    Again I think it's stupid over a word.
