Rdoug52, your response speaks volumes.....
I believe this issue will go away soon after it ceases to galvanize the evangelical fear machine. I still agree with some who suggest this all boils down, in large part, to a choice of vernacular. For now, it seems, the definition of "marriage" shall be protected in its current (and in my opinion, archaic) terms. Perhaps, just now, the fight for that word is still an uphill battle in terms of advancing LBGT rights... and that's OK (fine, I'll take "civil union"). Remember, with the rich and mighty, always a little patience. This issue is only interesting to the Church as long as it continues to fill the pews (and the coffers).
