Just Wondering

married

Conservatives are adamant that marriage should signify the union between a man and a woman. They tend to react in horror when laws are passed that allow two people of the same sex to wed. They even discuss impeaching the judges who support the rights of all people to join together in matrimony. One individual even made the following statement about the recent Pennsylvania decision:

 This decision is absolutely outrageous and it reads like a parody. We have moved beyond judicial activism into judicial imperialism.”

So if “marriage” between same sex individuals is so horrific, why not call it something else? Surely someone could come up with terminology that would satisfy both sides and still maintain the dignity and respect of the marital union.

Any suggestions?
