In my opinion, the real liberty position on gay marriage is get the government out of ALL marriage.

I agree with you there. I wish all the libertarians would get on that page.  We should never forget that a government can never give people rights, but only take them away.

Concur.

But, I still think the term gay marriage is an oxymoron. There needs to be a new term for a permanent homosexual partnership.

feel free to create your own term, but I am sure that people in these permanent homosexual partnerships are going to tell people and think of themselves as married.

Probably the same term as a permanent interracial marriage.... ;)

I realize you don't think the term is appropriate, but do you know what "oxymoron" means? I don't see how you arrived at that particular description. You're suggesting that "gay" has the opposite meaning of "marriage"?

I wouldn't consider 'marriage' to be a permanent relationship. Its not natural; its contractual.

I also agree! The only reason the government is involved in marriage is to collect money from two people loving on another. Marriage is a religious ceremony...NOTHING ELSE!!!!    The gov gets involved to say OK you both now own half of each others assets and there will be a fee for establishing that.  O and if you split up we will decide what to do with your kids, if you have kids, and force the losing party to pay more

Pretty sure no marriage is permanent. Why, some traditional marriage vows expressly contemplate when it will terminate, e.g. death, but not in the event of illness, poverty, or other "bad times".

I wouldn't agree with that either.  I certainly think that atheists or non religious people can get married.  Marriage is a contract between two people.  Or between two people and God in the case of religious people.

I was being sarcastic. And I meant to type permanent heterosexual partnership.

I thought marriage licensing was started by The Church, to "legitimize" the relationship AND recognize "property rights".  (back when women/children were viewed as "property")  Then, since The Church was a power above kingdoms, those licenses were acknowledged by secular governments.
