First let me state we all deserve the same rights and I believe we are headed in the right direction...Last week there was a lot of talk about marriage.... Vermont's legislature over rode the governor's veto to legalize gay marriage, and Washington DC pushed forward a law that would recognize legal same-sex marriages from other states...Any way Colorado just passed a law that allows any two unrelated adults to become a pair of "designated beneficiaries marriage " What does that mean? Beneficiaries couples can inherit property without a will, make medical decisions for one another, sue for wrongful death, and enjoy other benefits of a legal partnership commonly known as marriage... So two gay, or straight, or non-romantically involved people can enter into one of these contracts all the same...I agree 100% with the new law but I kinda get frustrated when gay rights advocates insist on calling their unions "marriage," because it's at that point I have a hard time separating the word marriage from the church ...I'd like to see more people framing this issue as a question of legal rights as opposed to a religious issue...And I think once same sex partners get the same rights, it will go a long way toward fixing the religious issue...So, I guess it's really just a question of strategy any way would you rather see a total separation of legal unions and religious ones?
