There’s no shortage of opinions when it comes to gay marriage. That’s for sure. The fact that California’s Proposition 8 made it all the way to the United States Supreme Court is a final testament to that fact, I think. Regardless of the upcoming outcome, now that the official arguments for Prop 8 are over; and the arguments for the Defense of Marriage Act are now set for tomorrow morning — we’ve got a lot of possible landslide legislative and cultural changes up and coming within just days.
One argument is the notion of effectively separating the institution of legal marriage into two parts, “marriage,” between a man and a woman, and “civil unions,” apparently, between any two people, with the same benefits of marriage — just… not. In other words, “Separate, but Equal.”
Haven’t we already figured out that that doesn’t work?
