Again you turned back to Government control- and no you don't have a Civil right to marry! Marriage has been as will always be a Religious right! It was created in the Church. You can have the Government controled Civil Union but it's not a marriage! Can't have it both ways people one or the other! Why must the gay's have it called marriage? I'll tell you why cause society has given those truely married certian beneifits to being married! Married couples enjoin in shared property rights, monitary rights, equal descisions on raising children and certain tax, medical benifits! This is why the gays want the same treatment they want what normal people enjoy- theses are not civil rights! Cause there lifestyle is a choice - they choose to be the way they are. A chioce that deny's them the same lifestyle as straight married people .
