You are absolutely right. These poor people have been mocked and persecuted throughout history. Enough is enough. They should be allowed to enter into a union that is (sad to say) recognized by our society as legal.
I'm so glad I live in the San Francisco Bay Area where at least people get it. It's normal and natural here, and no one blinks an eye seeing people of the same sex, obviously in love. Even in Europe, it's also completely accepted.
Only in America the land of the free....jeesh. Damn puritanical mind-set.
