"It's Just the Word...Marriage!"

I went to a pub in a nearby town and saw a man reading a newspaper article about 'same-sex marriage'.

So, having never met the guy before and not living in the area I just decided to ask him what he thought of 'gay marriage'.

He replied that he had nothing in particular against civil partnerships and all that. He said, "It's just the word...marriage! Why can't they call it something else? Anything else but marriage!"

Unfortunately, this kind of confused thinking abounds. Not surprising, given the scandal of Archbishop Nichols and others calling themselves Catholic, supporting the Civil Union legislation, and the myriad other legislative amendments that piggy-backed on it.
