That depends... Simply disagreeing with someones life is not bullying. Harrassing them is. Telling joe one time that sally thinks he is wrong is not bullying or if it comes up in conversation. Trying to affect joe's life negatively is

Should the government do civil unions for everyone? Yes. Should churches have to marry Everyone? No

People will always suck and will always be mean but I think there is a difference between true bullying and just being an asshat. I think bullying comes in when its a repetetive behavior and they just won't let up

Minority or not, the fact that legislators are responding and agreeing is enough to irritate me. The numbers don't matter, what matters is that the kids are suffering because of it and the bullies now have a LAW to back them up! All they have to do is claim religion and they can get off, to a point, and that shouldn't be allowed.

That is just absurd. I don't care what you believe in, that doesn't mean you get to pick on other people and use your beliefs as a crutch to do so. Sod off with that crap.

Why do you think they have to buy off the politicians? Plenty of them would do this all on their own given half a chance.

Oy vey... Bought off/easilly swayed/easily threatened/insert any number of reasons a politician would do something unpopular

Yes I am sure many would do something like this on their own If they could but they are so easily pressured, especially during an election year

Should churches have to marry everyone? NO, of course not. NO one is saying they should. Churches can already pick and choose who they marry as that is their right. HOWEVER, churches do NOT own the rights to marriage. Marriage is not exclusive to churches. I am MARRIED to my husband, not "civilly unioned" to him and there is no church involved.

I don't think bullying has to be repetitive to be bullying. To me it is tormenting, harassing, physically or emotionally assaulting someone you are fairly sure can't retaliate for some reason.

Very true. Marriage predates Christianity by a long time, and Judaism as well.

Well... Whatever. I think everyone should have access to the rights whether its marriage, common law, civil union, whatever. They should be able to be with their partner in te hospital etc etc

But then I think the government should be put of the business of marrige all together

Why? Marriage is the contract that gives us those rights. Why do we need a new term just because the church is not affiliated with it?

I am seriously not trying to be snarky at all. I just dont understand this line of thinking. Marriage has pretty much always been a contract recognized by "government" of some type or another. Why because gays want to now get married (and have had the right before throughout history) should the term have to change? Why should government have to "get out of marriage business"?

I dont know, IMO if the people who dont want their marriage to be called the same as gay marriages (and I am NOT saying anyone here feels this way, but I have heard this argument) then they can get a civil union or pick a new word.
