Marriage is historically defined as a relationship between a man and a woman and not just by Christian and Jewish societies. A homosexual relationship does not fit this definition. This is ultimately a question of whose relationships are we going to recognize as legitimate in our society. This is what the homosexual activists are wanting-legitimacy. People, who don’t believe in God, are ultimately going to live however they want to, whether the government acknowledges it or not. I have posed myself this question, if the U.S. goes to hell in a handbasket and my marriage license is not worth the paper it is written on, will I still be married? The answer is yes, because ultimately my relationship with my wife is first and foremost a relationship between God, my wife and myself. The marriage license makes it a matter of public record. Homosexuality being an immoral lifestyle does not include God. Even if the government somehow acknowledges these relationships, they will only be legal in nature. Civil unions would protect their rights, but the liberals will not be satisfied with this because of the seperate but equal argument. The truth is you can call a relationship a marriage all you want but if God ain’t in it, it doesn’t mean much, even if it is a heterosexual relationship.
