Google Fantastic initiative by Google. Anna Peirano details: "Google is launching a new campaign called 'Legalize Love' with the intention of inspiring countries to legalize marriage for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people around the world. The 'Legalize Love' campaign officially launches in Poland and Singapore on Saturday, July 7th. Google intends to eventually expand the initiative to every country where the company has an office, and will focus on places with homophobic cultures, where anti-gay laws exist." As proud as I am of living in the first country to legalise same-sex marriage, it's easy to forget we only did so in 2000. Also, it's about time the large technology companies of the world started using their power, reach, and money to do good. Hopefully, this initiative will transcend company boundaries, uniting them behind a common, noble goal.

Marriage, by definition, is a religious observance
This is not true anymore, now this is an overloaded term which can mean either religious marriage or civil marriage..

I agree with you, that this overloading shouldn't have happened, but it happened, do not pretend the opposite..

Not that it is a big issue, always prepend marriage with civil or religious and rational people shouldn't have issues, well of course religious people are not very rational, so..
