Here's what people don't seem to understand, though: There are benefits with marriage. Right now, if two couples -- one heterosexual, one homosexual -- each had one person who was in the hospital. The heterosexual couple can be together, the homosexual couple can't even see eachother. Why? The heterosexual couple was married.Originally posted by JaWiB
Obviously yes, but what will it be? Do we really think it will make a large difference to homosexuals? Why do they really care in the first place?
I don't know enough to say, but we should examine their motives; are they valid, or simply an effort to "fit in" to society?
There are more (tax benefits, what happens in case of sudden death, etc, etc.), and that's the real injustice. A SECULAR government can't give a certain part of the population benefits while excluding another part "because the bible says so".
