Wait.....let me see.....yep, still here. The earth did not stop spinning, the world did not end, families did not crumble underneath the weight of gay marriage. I was a little nervous there for a second.

Didn't you read the article? It's a civil union, not a marriage. Marriage is a union between 2 people before witnesses with the blessing from God and usually takes place in a church; not some city hall or municipal building. "DENVER - The first gay couple granted a CIVIL UNION hundreds of people early Wednesday morning at a downtown Denver MUNICIPAL BUILDING where couples and members of the public gathered."

allnutz - True it's a civil union, but the marriage you are describing is not the marriage that is registered with the state. People tend to confuse the sacrement of marriage with the license that is granted by the state. While I went the church route there are plenty of people who get married in the eyes of the state without setting foot in a place of worship. I will respect a denomination or religions choice in who they will or will not marry, baptize, confirm, whatever, but those preferences should not automatically translate to civic law.

My wife and I were married in a lawyer's office and I'm atheist. Do I need to say I'm civil unioned instead of married from now on?
