  •  thanks for your sincere question (18+ / 0-)

    I'm not really well-versed on this issue, but agree it   is one that should be handled on "Constitutional grounds, or practical political grounds" instead of religious grounds

    According to this statement for the Edwards website, I think John Edwards agrees with this criteria too:

    Senator John Edwards released the following statement today on New Hampshire's recognition of civil unions.

    "Today, Gov. Lynch and the state of New Hampshire showed us that the idea of America -- fairness, justice and equal opportunity -- can become a reality when we have the courage to stand up for what is right. New Hampshire's decision to recognize civil unions and grant gay and lesbian couples the same rights granted to heterosexual married couples is an important step in the fight for justice. This is an issue of fundamental fairness, and by passing this law, New Hampshire's leaders chose fairness over discrimination."
