Civil Union

The republicans in my great state of Minnesota ran a relentless campaign this past election on primary notion of reigning in Government spending that apparently had gone awry.

Their first act of legislation?

Fix the budget?
Put a vote to the people to constitutionally ban gay marriage.

With all the problems we have going on in our fair state this non-issue is where you start?
It makes me sick.

Let everybody get a civil union. Take love out of it, take god out of it.

Every man and woman should be allowed to form a union with another person for the purposes of handling medical issues if they become ill, managing their estates if they die, looking after their child if something happens to them.

Even if I am not gay I should have the right to appoint who ever I want man or woman to this role period.

To do otherwise is a violation of the constitution and the separation of church and state. If you confer these rights to people for a religious reason and refuse to confer these rights to people outside of that religion you are in violation of the 14th Amendment and its Equal Protection Clause.

Apparently when you were grand standing on the floor and reciting the constitution out loud you failed to understand the meaning.
