Most of them don't want a christian ceremony, just a "civil union". The bible says that it is wrong, but it also says to let God take care of the sinners. Why can't people just let them do what they want, and answer to god when the time comes? Of course my opinion is open to change, but i just don't understand why so many people use this hate/discrimination of others in the name of god. [/quote] I hear ya. I have pretty much the same view.. But the danger is, once you start pandering, and making changes like this, it can change the whole culture... Now it just depends on whether or not you believe the cultural changes that stem from this will be good or bad? [/quote]
The words “bride” and “groom” – along with “husband” and “wife” are about to become archaic language in Washington state as officials prepare to remove the terms from marriage and divorce certificates.
Tim Church, a spokesman for the Wash. state Health Department, told Fox News they will likely be removing those words in favor of more gender neutral terms.
He said the changes are necessary in response to the same-sex marriage law that takes effect Dec. 6.
“We’ve been quickly moving ahead to change our marriage certificate to make sure it fits for everyone who is going to be using it,” he told Fox News.
The words “bride” and “groom” could be replaced with “Spouse A” and “Spouse B” or “Person A” and “Person B,” Church said.
The department has been taking public input but the state’s secretary of health will ultimately decide which terms are used.
