Yup. Earlier I debated with a close friend on facebook that was calling a Civil Union equal to marriage. Close, but no cigar, man. Hahaha. Well, here's a screenshot of his status with his argument anyway: [link]
At first this didn't piss me off. I mean, he was clearly just misinformed?? Because we're supposed to be talking about a marriage license, which is a civil issue, not a religious one. Plus he obviously didn't know Civil Unions don't offer equal rights as marriage, which basic research would have led him to know, but I digress. But later, in the comments, he suggested in a nutshell that homosexuals just get a civil union and basically have a pretend wedding and call their significant other their husband or wife or whatever to feel more equal. It just doesn't work like that. That got me a little riled and I went and took a nap I was so full of steam (and here I am now).
But to make things a little bit better, I went back to see that his very own had aunt slammed him with this on his wall: [link]
He has admitted defeat. All is well now.
