I don't think forcing churches to marry people was every really the issue, though. You guys are forgetting that I'm really in the middle of this argument.

You've said this before (implying many or even a majority of homosexuals are against homosexual marriages/civil unions/whatever). Do you have any grounds for saying this? Have you talked to any homosexuals on the issue? Are you quoting from a survey that I'm unaware of? Details man! Details!

First off, I'm a double major of communications and political science at KSU. To answer your question, yes, there maintains an extreme liberal bias on most college campuses. I'm not freaking out here at all, just noting what I find blatently obvious.

I obviously can't quote for a majority, but some I've talked to actually find the media-show marriages in roller-coaster lines embarrassing and not fully representing what everybody wants. I know for a fact that my old musical director finds the concept unnecessary. He never had any problems visiting his life-partner in a hospital or sharing estate, nobody treats them like second-class citizens, nobody makes them unwelcome.... that it's simply not a need, that there are other battles far more worth perusing outside a certificate for political show (I wish I could quote him directly, I really liked what he had to say and I changed my opinion because of it.)

Marriage in Christianity is a union under God. People who aren't Christian who get married just get legally married it's not holy matrimony even though it might be said that way. That's just how it is. Christians are not opposed to non-Christian heterosexuals getting married. And since 'marriage' has grown to a general sense nowadays as a union between two people under the law, there just isn't anything holy about it anymore, it's all bastardized.

So does this
> mean that you also oppose marriage between non-Christian
> heterosexuals,?

I had an exgirlfriend who believed that marraige between to people of different Christian denominations was an affront to god. They would be "unequally yoked"!
