I'm Catholic, and although I don't recognize gay marriage, I recognize gay civil unions, etc. Just please don't call it marriage for I believe that's semantically been set to always mean a man and a woman. Politically, in my book, a civil union can be treated the exact same way a marriage can, just don't call it marriage. Otherwise, gays should have the freedom to cohabitate, co-sign, co-parent, etc.
How do you defend your stance on freedom to love or marry between the same sex? As a Christian I haven't quite mastered that, so I'm curious as to how you might.

First off, I need clarification on the last sentence of your first paragraph. Are you saying that you think a gay couple should be able to have all the characteristics of a marriage except the name, or that you DON'T want gay men to be able to cohabit etc. and that these are your reasons for not wanting them to marry?
Come to think of it, I need clarification on the question too. Do you want the theological and scripturaly interpretive defense of my stance, or the political one?0
