Here's the thing, people who are pro-gay marriage are going about it all wrong. Instead of trying to get gay marriage approved, what needs to happen is have the government out of our decision to marry alltogether. I shouldn't have had to gone and got a license to get married to my now wife and pay a fee for it.
People if they want to support gay marriage would catch much more fly's if they would support a less government society of having the government out of our lives. Why should some donkey government official say who I could or couldn't marry.
I don't like the concept of gay marriage, but I'm not opposed to it being called something else, marriage in it's truest sence of the word is the promotion of a woman to motherhood. Something that obviously can not happen. Also, another huge stumbling block for people who are pro-gay marriage by trying to get laws changed, it opens up for potential legal battles that could really hurt more people than it's supposed to help. A big argument, say it's now a legal act, gay's all over America are allowed to marry, by creating such law, you're now forcing certain religious sects to marry even if they disagree with your views, say the Catholic church. You've now created a legal battle as opposed to a unification of two people.
