expect by your comparison, engenders a distasteful reaction from most.
What about the majority who find the idea of same-sex marriage distasteful? You don't seem to be very worried about them. km
I can only go by my own personal experience and the rule of law in my land, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Same sex marriage is legal here. The majority of people have found nothing scary about it. Rabid talk radio does not even bring it up anymore. I have attended same sex ceremonies of homosexual couples who have gone on to adopt children, and one to even divorce. All the joys and pains enjoyed by heterosexual couples.
I do worry about the majority in California who found same sex marriage so distasteful that they voted against giving gays and lesbians the same rights enjoyed by citizens of my state. Anything I can do to overturn that ruling in a legal way I will do. California is on the other side of the country so sending a few dollars to the right organization is probably all I can do. I'll also send email and even respond on the internet as to why I think that the removal of those rights by the vote in California is a form of ignorance I thought had vanished in California.
I am overjoyed you are not arguing for animal unions as the mutual consent bar might be very difficult to clear even with a very smart lamb. Why did you bring up animal unions then? A slippery slope? Homosexual marriage is one step away from bestiality? Were you reading too much of the Mormon four color glossy mailers?

Likewise we've modified marriage to include same sex. Well, actually we didn't modify it. The catholic church recognized same sex unions long ago, we've just brought it back.

You mean how do I know that same-sex unions are not marriages? What a stupid question - how is anyone supposed to imagine you meant that? Because marriage is the consummated union of one man and one woman that's why - you love asking for everything that's already been posted several times to be repeated right?
