I'm impressed with this quote:
NEA does not believe that a single term must be used to designate this legally recognized "equal treatment" relationship, and recommends that each state decide for itself whether "marriage," "civil union," "domestic partnership," or some other term is most appropriate based upon the cultural, social, and religious values of its citizenry.
Perhaps it's just that I'm from California and such things seem old hat to me, but are there any states that don't allow some sort of civil union? If so, which ones? And if not, what is the purpose of this new business item (NBI) except to promote gay marriage? And why should a labor union get to spend my money promoting such an issue? Answer: it shouldn't.
