As for me, this is one time I agree with Danoz. There's no reason why churches should be forced to marry same-sex couples if they don't wish to do so. I'm of the stance that the legal definition of marriage should apply to same-sex marriages as well - you still have to get a marriage license, still have to go through the same legal hoo-hah to get married as a heterosexual couple, and still get the same benefits. If you want to call it a civil union, fine. Call it an extruded pineapple for all I care. I don't speak for the gay community as a whole (which is unfortunate), but the problem is that the gay community aren't separating out the religious and legal sides of it. Should gays be legally married/unioned/pinappled/whatevered? Sure. Should churches be forced to have a religious marriage ceremony for said gay couple to be able to get legally married? Fuck no.
