Seriously what gives heterosexuals the right to claim ownership of a word and define it. I claim owner ship of the word Human and I will define it as I see fit form now on, and only I qualify because I have decided to exclude everyone else based on the doctrine of my religion which I came up with myself. Everyone else is less than me. Does this seem ludicrous to anyone else.
As Dr. Wurm stated if the state is going to start handing out civil unions to one set of individuals that is all it should hand out and recognize. Also religious groups should not be able to legally bind individuals into a marriage/civil union if thats the way you want things to be. In fact I think it should be that way because otherwise in my opinion it violates the idea of separation of church and state.
