HE IS THE CONSERVATIVE ALTERNATIVE IN THE '08 RACE:

McCain is star of Proposition 107 TV commercials (Dan Nowicki, 11/02/2006, Arizona Republic)

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a likely 2008 presidential aspirant, is starring in two new television spots for Proposition 107, a proposed state constitutional amendment that would ensure that same-sex marriages or civil unions are never legal in Arizona and ban governments, such as cities or towns or universities, from providing benefits to unmarried domestic partners.

Why put same sex marriagess and civil union in the same basket? They're quite different and I see nothing morally or legally wrong with any two people setting up a legally binding contract, a civil union if you will, to name each other heirs, etc.

Yes, they should negotiate contracts as individuals, not have a special civil status.

Works for me.

Mrs. Erp, they've been able to do that all along. It's an issue because: one, many of them get off more on making a scene then then on performing the act; two, many of them are stringing along their sex kittens until they're bored of them. It's sad. All these people can do is erode the foundation. They can't build anything in it's place.

Rbt, McCain made a mistake by not making the distinction between gay marriage and a legal contract/civil union. Obviously gays don't really care about equal rights, what they want, as you correctly note, is moral equivalency with straights.

That ain't gonna happen and the more nutso gay pride parades like the ones in San Francisco will start reasonable people thinking that maybe the bigots really are right and gays are an aberration.
