Spain becomes the fourth country today to grant its citizens marriage equality.

Some of you may be wondering why I constantly refer to this issue as marriage equality, and not same-sex marriage, gay marriage, or any other nomenclature. The reason is simple. The movement is about the government granting the same rights to same-sex married couples as they do to any couple. So, that's the goal... marriage equality... equality in marriage. Furthermore, terms like gay marriage tend to make people afraid that the movement wants to force churches to change their beliefs. Of course, this is not true, and marriage equality is COMPLETELY compatible with the choices of any church. This is simply a matter of civil marriage... civil rights. Thus, the term marriage equality is the most accurate phrase for what gay couples and their allies are trying to achieve.
