09:41 pm - Marriage vs. civil unions
Lots of other people on my friends list are debating the whole marriage/civil union thing. What I wanna know is... how come the religious types get to keep the word "marriage"? My mom and dad got *married*, and they're not Christian! I say, we call the legal union "marriage" and make the Christians use some other term for their religious ceremony. How about "holy matrimony"? That sounds nice and grand and dignified and what have you.
