The Legal Right to Marry

This is an interesting article from People for the American Way (great group, by the way) that gives polling data on people's attitude to same sex marriage. I find it quite interesting that when you make clear that when it is made clear that it would not force religious groups to perform same sex marriages support for having same sex unions legal goes up dramatically.

What many people don't understand is just how badly same sex couples are affected by not having the legal rights afforded by marriage, in areas such as making medical decisions for an incapacitated partner (or even being able to see that partner in the hospital), inheritance issues, and much more.

You stupid cunt, there are no legal RIGHTS afforded by marriage.

They are legal PRIVILEGES that are afforded by marriage, and idiots like you want to FORCE Americans to grant such privileges to those they don't want to grant.
