A small but important difference

Many people have said they support civil unions for same sex couples and marriage for heterosexual couples, with the two institutions being functionally identical– so what’s the big deal? The big deal is that the division therefore exists solely to differentiate, and thus to degrade, the same sex institution. From the state, it’s either civil unions for everybody, or marriages for everybody, but not one for one group and another for the other group. Not if we honor our commitments to equal protection and equal rights under the law. For the religious designation, that’s between you and your church and your god.
