This is primarily aimed at USA citizens, but all are welcome to participate. I've brought this up before, but it's been a long time, and the active membership at LPSG has changed considerably since then. I hope that it can open the door for some good, logical debate, without becoming a flame war. First, I have wondered if the debate would be less hot-button if the terminology were changed from "same-sex marriage" to "same-gender marriage." It seems to me that having the word "sex" associated with it tends to push buttons before the debate gets off the ground. Second, I'm curious what reasoning any "anti" folks may have. Honest, logical reasoning. "Because I say so" is not reasoning, it's trolling. Perhaps we can understand each other better if we have a calm, logical discourse on the subject. I'll look for flaws of logic in the "anti" arguments, and invite anyone to find flaws of logic in the "pro" posts.
