  •  I don't think its homophobia..... (0+ / 0-)

    Edwards, Obama and Clinton and most liberal politicians will readily say they support civil unions, but not gay marriage.  Probably because the term "gay marriage" is more politically radioactive than "civil unions".  Its a semantics game, a stupid one, but there are alot of stupid voters out there and if they can't get elected, they can't reform things to make things better for gay people.

    Its just like in 2004.  All these court cases came out regarding gay marriage/civil unions BEFORE the 2004 election and that gave the rethugs yet another bogeyman...."gay marriage"...and they used it to great success.

    So, please, just STFU for now and let them get elected, then start lobbying for whats right.
