Letter: Marriage means marriage
To those who oppose the marriage amendment: Has it ever occurred to you that many who support the amendment support it because to them "marriage" has always meant the union of a man and a woman?
Should black be diluted to mean black as well as yellow? Should Chevrolet Impala be corrupted to mean all of those as well as Ford Crown Victorias?
I think you should try assigning a new acceptable civil union term giving the same legal status to a different class of couples and then try again.
