I vote leaving it marriage. There's no need to rename it.

It's still marriage, it doesn't need quotation marks.

Quite frankly, marriage is marriage. It is two people joining in unity and commiting themselves to one another exclusively. As a Christian woman, I was raised to believe that this sort of "union" should not be accepted. However, My feelings on the issue is....If those of different orientation would like to be miserable, nerve racked and bitter as the rest of us straight folks...so be it, lettem! LOL

Being divorced once and remarried, I have a sick and twisted bit of humor on the topic of marriage, so excuse me if I offend anyone LOL.

I'll elaborate a little too. I think that straight couples have ruined marriage long before now. I'm a very ... More
AMEN! Im with you 100% on that note (the politicians). The politicians are so busy trying to control what is "right and wrong" for every individual that they are essentially taking away our God given free will to live as we please. Be it right or wrong by anyone's standards, THEY don't have to live it. Another thing that irks me is everyone's gasping and ridiculous media coverage on the politicians indiscretions. Yes, they are human, just like us. They are not God. I don't agree with something the president does behind his wife's back (or whatever it may be) but its not going to affect how I vote for them if they can still run the country! Everyone these days are too involved in everyone else's business.

Renaming it doesn't change what it is.

You can call a dolphin a whale, but it's still going to be a dolphin at the end of the day, and it just makes you look ignorant for calling it otherwise.

I don't think it should be called "gay marriage". I think it should just be called marriage.

If straight couples can be "married", than so should gay couples.

It should remain marriage because that's exactly what it is.

Straight people don't get "Straight Married"

It should just be marriage for whoever gets married.

Marriage. If it's good enough for a straight couple, it's good enough for a gay couple.

I think it might be cool to give it another name, just to show that you all beat the system! But marriage is marriage. I'm not sure.

It should still be called marriage, anything different and it would be considered less than that of a marriage between a man and a woman.

Great post, and very true about laws being culturally and socially defined.

I don't think it should be renamed, unless the word marriage it replaced for everyone

Kind of annoys me every time I hear "gay marriage". It's either marriage or it's not...

No matter WHAT you call it people will STILL call you married, that is if it gets legalized. But doubtfully it will with those more than ready to appeal it

Of course it should stay marriage. Marriage as a concept is the joining of two people who love one another and want to commit to each other for life. It should not matter what gender they are!

I don't even think it should be called "gay marriage", just marriage. The clarification really isn't necessary.

I think it should be called marriage. Not "gay" marriage. It should be called MARRIAGE. Marriage existed before religion and government and besides, people's close-minded views shouldn't dictate others' lives.

If things are truely equal, it shouldn't matter what it's called. I honestly support abolishing all marriages. Do whatever you want in your churches, but keep the laws out of it. Just my two cents.
