Dont you think any issue of human relationships to each other that is presently descriminated against based on religious definitions is a civil rights issue?
LAws of Joint Tenancy with rights of survivorship are decreed as valid for many classes of human relationships EXCEPT for gay partners. Whyzat? I submit that its because of religious mind control over the body politic. Id think that, as a liberatrian, you would be for full suffrage and recognition of partnerships with all rights and benefits therein accrued.
Right now the governments of the several states have decreed the marital state and the ranges of benefits that can be enjoyed and NOT ENJOYED. Thats total religious -state bullshit in my eyes.
I don't see it as an issue of liberty,
in that thay r free to associate as much as thay want to;
that is not obstructed by law. To MY
mind, it is not a religious issue.
For sure MY
mind is not under the control of any religion.
I have never had much interest in this issue; neutral.
( I feel safe from marriage, as long as I don 't actually DO
I see it as a matter of technical LEGAL
definition, not religious,
tho some folks see it in religious terms.
