  •  I once stood (very firmly) (0+ / 0-)

    where you stand today. I'm sure much of that had to do with my upbringing and time in the service. (I also was against gays serving openly in the military but that was simply because the rules said they couldn't.)

    Once I started challenging some of my once-revered positions on some things and questioning some of the "rules" I'd lived under most of my adult life, I began to question my stance on many. I remain torn on who holds the franchise on the word "marriage" but I refuse to cede the point to the Conservative or Christian mindset that deems it somehow "sanctified" considering the abuse they've heaped on it over the years.

    I jokingly ask my gay friends why they would even want to use the term given what it's gone through at the hands of so many alleged married faithful. Now I don't really have a stand on it, pro or con, as I don't feel it has any impact on my personal relationship, past marriage or subsequent divorce!

    Nice talking to you, too, new friend.
    Will be checking you out around the sandbox!
