This paper talks about the different viewpoints and arguments about what marriage is and should be. The paper also talks about how the issue that faces most homosexual couples seeking a" recognized union" is whether they are being granted the same equal rights that the Constitution promotes.

From the Paper:

"Many religious conservatives feel that marriage is a sacred, a holy union, which should not be tarnished by allowing people of the same sex to join in holy matrimony. What is further compounding and confusing this issue making it so complex is the fact that many different people are debating their viewpoints from totally separate angles. For example, right-winged legal groups feel that allowing homosexual couples to marry would take away from the holy concept of a marriage being solely between a man and woman. Whereas the issue that faces most homosexual couples seeking a "recognized union" is not whether or not their type of relationship is seen to other people as religiously acceptable or moral, but whether or not they are being granted the same and equal rights that our beloved constitution promotes and protects for all."
