    I’m confused. Is your assertion that only Republicans can change their positions on social issues? It has been my experience that, as a general rule, Republicans are unwilling to change their positions on almost anything, right or wrong.

    Not that it matters; just curious.

    But I will say that the idea that gay marriage somehow threatens the institution of heterosexual marriage is as absurd as the people who want to ban abortions saying that all the legislative roadblocks they sponsor are for the health of the mother.

    Or that people feel the need to go to war to protect peace.

    Government shouldn’t give benifits to any kind of marriage. It is a choice people make, why should they get a break for that?

    When a Republican changes his mind, it’s called flipflopping. When a Democrat does it, it’s called evolving.

    How is this even still an issue? The second decade of the 21st century in the United States of America and the Supreme Court is STILL deciding if everyone is equal. We just have to do better than this as a nation. Just have to.

    Historically, government saw an advantage to a larger population, that’s why. We don’t need that advantage now, so it is vestigial.

    If your saying gay marriage is a sexual perversion then you are the perverted one.

    “Bill Clinton signed a bill separate fro Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. He also signed a bill declaring Marriage to be between a Man and a Woman.”

    I’ve addressed that comment days ago on another cartoon. Clinton signed the DoMA as a compromise with Republicans, who were looking to amend the Constitution. Clinton knew that it would be easier to change a law then a constitutional amendment.

    For which comment?

    I totally agree. Separate church and state. Let couples have partnership contracts for tax reasons, children and hospital visits. Marriage can be solely religious and for personal reasons. Cut out tax breaks for churches too.

    Getting married is what happens when you sign the contract provided by your state government – usually after the public ceremony, if you have one. It’s up to the government already so there is no point in making it more confusing. The Catholic Church already makes the distinction between what it considers a “holly sacrament” and what the state or other churches call marriage. Other churches could do the same and they start discussing reciprocal privileges… I can hardly wait.

    Leave marriage for two consenting adults. Churches can have holy unions, sacraments, blessed joinings, or what ever. Atheists can be married, and don’t need a church for that. People that use a church to perform their ceremony still need a marriage license from the government. That makes marriage a civil contract.
