Gay marriage

I’ve wanted to write about the whole gay marriage flap lately, but haven’t had time nor have I found anything particularly new to say on the subject. Then I stumbled on ambivalent imbroglio, a weblog by law student at George Washington University. I have that site to thank for the link to 12 reasons Gay Marriage Will Ruin Society.

It’s good for a chuckle. And perhaps my favorite quip on the subject comes from Jon Stewart, from several months ago:

“I don’t want to marry another man.”

(he pauses, as he pretends to be hearing a voice in the ear-piece)

“What? You mean… it’s not mandatory?”

“Oh. So then what’s the worry?”

    The issue is the issue of word usage and association. Those who marry of the same sex should be entitled to the same benefits under the title of 'Civil Union' Those who marry opposite sex get the same benefits as a Civil Union under the title of a 'Marriage.'

    I think a vast majority of America would support this philosophy more so than rampant law breaking in San Francisco.
