well good luck, I believe the resolution will fall somewhere in the middle and both sides won't get entirely what they want. BTW I am a conservative.Were not all homophobic religious radicals.

Many people who are opposed to gay marriage are against it mainly for that one reason - the redefinition of the word 'marriage'. Civil unions with every last one of the rights and responsibilities of marriage would have been in place years ago if the self-selected leaders and spokespersons (another invented word) of the 'gay community' didn't push so hard for 'we want it and we want it under our terms exactly the way we want it or we'll resist.' Stubborn people sometimes get what they deserve - a big delay in achieving their goals and many lingering hurt feelings on both sides along the way.

Mark - Thanks for the conversation. I am a liberal, but I have many conservative friends, and we have some great discussions. I think the country would not be as polarized as it is if people would be open to dialogue. I would be open to changing the word "marriage" in the spirit of compromise as long as in included all of the rights and privileges of marriage. Take care!

Phil - What you say is not entirely correct. The Catholic Church is opposed to both gay marriage and civil unions, and the Church has used its considerable resources to oppose both. It is important to remember that we are talking about civil marriage, not religious marriage. Thus, what the Catholic Church or any religion has to say on the subject is irrelevant.

I strongly feel that the church and religion needs to stay out of government politics. if churches and religous groups insist on playing politics then I beleive that they should be releived of the "tax exempt" status that they now enjoy. In the state of Maryland the government could raise millions of dollars in revenue from this avenue. This would surely help with the budget shortfalls that we have. kill two birds with one stone. keep your religeon to yourself and stop forcing others to follow your beleifs.
