The word ’marriage’ is a religious word rooted in the tradition of natural law. Such law holds, not that gays are evil, but that male/female couples are natural and the best arrangement for raising children. Homosexual relationships are not the issue in this debate but the definition of marriage. We can define non-marriage relationships any way we like as long as we do not steal a definition rooted in religious traditions that gave us civil society as we know it.

"Matrimony," from the Latin - which predates Christianity - comes from the word, "the duty of motherhood," Mary Shivanandan, a professor of theology with the John Paul II Institute in Washington.
