Passive Activism

Republicans: Quit wasting our tax money on word definitions.

Why do they have to make everything so complicated. Ok. Lets give it to them. If the right-wingers want to define marriage as a union between opposites sexes, lets let them have it their way.

BUT. You don't need to put it in the constitution. The constitution should NEVER be used to discriminate against citizens or to take away their liberties.

AND. We need to come up with a "Civil Union" to accomodate those who don't meet the simple-minded right wing ideal of marriage. We need this "Civil Union" so that two people can commit themselves to each other regardless of the prejudices of others. It doesn't have to be based on sexual orientation. I'm sure there are couples who are married strictly for companionship, opposite sexes, and are asexual. I know of regular couples like this and that really can't be defined as "marriage" because of the lack of copulation. What if two good friends want to commit their lives to each other, and they are of the same sex, but they are not gay. It happens all the time. How about two sisters that are through trying to find "Mr Right" and are disgusted with the thought of commiting themselves to a man, so they commit the rest of their lives to each other, completely asexual relationship. We need a legal union to cover these people for legal purposes.

Let's give the republicans their marriage definition, and then come up with a intelligent solution for the union of those people the republicans want to discriminate against.
