Goin' to the chapel...kinda

Unless you've been in a coma you've undoubtedly heard the ruling by the New Jersey Supreme Court on gay marriage. I figured I'd post it anyway since Jersey is my home state and all...

"TRENTON, New Jersey (Reuters) - New Jersey's highest court on Wednesday guaranteed gay couples the same rights as married heterosexuals, but left it up to state lawmakers to decide if such unions can be called marriage."

Law makers have 180 days to either decide to call it marriage or come up with with some other "separate but equal" word to define same sex unions. So it boils down to a game of semantics. Frankly, the only thing to call it is marriage. It's the only word that will carry any weight anywhere else in the world. And didn't we learn back in Brown V. the Board of Education that there's no such thing as "separate but equal"?
